Hannah Abler Occupational-Career Analysis Paper EDU 101 Professor Bachman Mediator First, I would like to point out the difference between an arbitrator and a mediator. The only thing the two really have in common is that they are an indifferent third party. An arbitrator hears the case, including testimony from both sides, and then submits his or her opinion about what should be done, which is then followed as the arbitrator outlined. The two parties then, usually, have 30 days to file for a re-trial if they both object to the award. The award is either a win-lose or lose-lose situation; it is almost never a win-win. A mediator, however, is very different situation. A mediator sits down with the parties and helps them to find a solution that they are both happy with. A mediator also has to make the people involved comfortable and set them at ease; he also has to orient people to the process of mediation. However, the biggest difference between a mediator and an arbitrator is that a mediator has to uncover the real problem separating the two couples and also has to uncover the needs, desires, and problems of the two parties involved. There is a second type of mediator, aside from the mainstream, and that is an evaluative mediator. An evaluative mediator hears cases in which the value of the case needs to be estimated. He or she hears the complaints and issues of both sides and then gives his or her opinion about the value of the case. One such example of an evaluative mediator is a personal injury mediator. These mediators often work with victims and their insurance companies.

willing to give, and then give their opinion about how much the victim should be awarded. The mediation then moves forward from that point with negotiations between the two parties. It is very important for evaluative mediators to be respected. If they aren’t, then their job no longer exists. Mediation is better than arbitration for another reason: the cost. Mediation is so much cheaper than any other route because neither party has to hire an attorney. The results are also more satisfying than the results that the same case would receive from arbitration or litigation. Mediation allows the parties to have control over the outcome, which helps to make it a win-win situation. Mediation isn’t widely used due to the simple fact that not many people are aware
