When is mediation in an employment conflict in Utrecht necessary?
In the workplace, various conflicts can arise between colleagues and between employers and employees, among others. Conflicts often arise from ignorance and misunderstanding. They arise from friction between each other’s customs, beliefs or cultures. For example, a conflict arises due to a lack of understanding:
- The colleague who withdraws for a prayer during the break, and thus falls outside the team’s habits.
- The colleague who skips the Friday afternoon drinks because of the snacks he does not eat because of his religion.
- The employee who does not dare to stand up to the employer and therefore comes across as a snob to his boss.
- The employer who gives commands to his employee because he is used to it from his culture, while his employee is used to a completely different way of working together.
These are just a few examples of irritations that can arise in the intercultural workplace. Of course, mediation in other types of labour conflicts is also possible in Utrecht. Feel free to ask about the possibilities for your personal situation.
Conflicts also arise when there is miscommunication. This may be because one party or several parties do not have a good command of the Dutch language. Or an employee may not dare to communicate well with the employer because of the relationships in position that he or she has inherited from his or her own culture. When communication is not good, ignorance and irritations quickly grow into conflicts.
