Calvin worked at a company for 10 years as a programmer. One day Calvin was called into the office of his manager, who then told him that the company was being downsized and thus he will be dismissed. Suing his employer for wrongful dismissal, the case was dragged on on numerous technicalities and a year later the matter was not yet resolved. Calvin was also running out of money and had to sell off some of his assets to survive.
After talking to a friend who just completed mediation training, Calvin asked his legal representative to discuss this option with his former employer. It was agreed upon and the case ended up before a mediator.
