First of all, Ebru Nomer gave information to the participants by making a presentation about Mediation in Legal Disputes.
Nomer said that the work on making the mediation system mandatory, which was implemented by the Ministry of Justice in order to resolve some disputes between the parties with the help of an impartial third party (mediator/ombudsman) without going to court, will be completed in June. Nomer, who also gave information about the compulsory mediation system, said, “First, we go to the mediator, and if there is no result, we go to the court. However, I can say that all the problems leading to mediation are usually resolved within hours before they reach the court level, and a hundred percent agreement is reached, especially in employee-employer disputes.” said.
On the other hand, it was stated that in the negotiations held within the scope of mediation, the 2-hour fee is covered by the state and if an agreement is reached by the parties within this period, there is no cost burden to the parties.

The business world attaches great importance to this. We think that this seminar we organized was very productive.” said.
