Why refer a dispute to a mediator?

The mediator is an out-of-court alternative for finding a solution to a dispute. He can be referred to when the parties voluntarily wish to find a solution based on mutual receptiveness and one that is both lawful and fair.

 

The mediation process is:

  • Simple: you just need to contact the mediator, by post or by filling in his form on the Internet,
  • Swift: the Consumer Code states that, barring special cases, a consumption mediation process must be completed within 90 days, after the Mediator has received documents enabling him to examine the dispute; for his part, the ENGIE Group’s Mediator resolves most disputes within 2 months: in 2016, the average resolution time was 64 days,
  • Structured: the Mediator has set up a process combining an in-depth analysis of the dispute, from its root cause, and discusses with the parties with a view to reaching a negotiated and agreed solution,
  • Free of charge for the claimant,
  • With every chance of success: in 2016 the ENGIE Group’s Mediation service secured a favourable outcome for 85% of the disputes it handled.

 

Mediation is a last form of amicable resolution but does not prevent the claimant from subsequently taking the case to court if the solution proposed by the mediator is unsatisfactory.
