As an employee who faced a wrongful termination case and wants a fair settlement without going to the courts, negotiation is your best choice to get your rights and save the relations with your boss.

Here are some tips before entering into negotiations:

  • You must fully know your legal rights and familiarize yourself with the Labor Law.
  • Collecting sufficient and supporting evidence for settlement claims.
  • Your arguments must be ready, so work out different scenarios for the negotiation process in advance.
  • You must be prepared to bargain.

For negotiations to be effective, some necessary techniques must be available when negotiating to obtain a settlement, as follows:

  • Legal knowledge. The person who wants the settlement process must have experience and familiarity with the various laws and regulations to use them appropriately and in a simplified manner to reach a just and amicable settlement.
  • Negotiation and persuasion skills. It is the essential technique that a settlement mediator must possess because the primary goal of negotiation is to tactfully convince one or both parties of the possible solutions in a way that all parties understand.
  • Patience and wisdom. This talent lets the mediator absorb everything the parties put forward and work to correct their mistakes smoothly and streamline.

Amicable settlements are an inevitable result of any dialogue process supported by negotiation skills and persuasion.
