Center for Conflict Resolution earns Outstanding Mediation Case Award
For the second consecutive year, Loyola Law School’s Center for Conflict Resolution (CCR) received the “Outstanding Mediation Case Award” from Los Angeles County for its work on behalf of a group of service employees claiming discrimination. The named winners were Mary Culbert '84, CCR director; Mary Britt '06, assistant director of operations; and student Eyad Aljubran.
The individuals all reported different instances of religion discrimination and harassment. The employer had numerous concerns as well, about actions taken to extend itself to these employees. The employer’s actions were perceived as discriminatory, when in fact the employer’s goal was the opposite. During the mediation, employees learned the proper way to file a complaint, the employer learned a lot about what the employees experienced as harassment and clarified their prior actions, and their commitment to a harassment free workplace. Both sides left confident that they understood one another.
