Open Access research that is exploring the innovative potential of sustainable design solutions in architecture and urban planning...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Architecture based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research activity at Architecture explores a wide variety of significant research areas within architecture and the built environment. Among these is the better exploitation of innovative construction technologies and ICT to optimise 'total building performance', as well as reduce waste and environmental impact. Sustainable architectural and urban design is an important component of this. To this end, the Cluster for Research in Design and Sustainability (CRiDS) focuses its research energies towards developing resilient responses to the social, environmental and economic challenges associated with urbanism and cities, in both the developed and developing world.

Abstract

'While many [employment disputes] are resolved informally, an increasing number progress into external resolution procedures such as mediation. While these procedures seek to resolve grievances and preserve employment relationships, many end with termination' (Walker and Hamilton, 2015). This paper explores how mediation practice might be affected by each of the three purposes outlined above: resolution of grievances, preservation of employment relationships and termination? The paper also draws upon the literature on employment mediation to consider the ethical and practical consequences of these distinct goals.
