Everything is coming online and becoming digital, so are the businesses.
All the business platforms like renting of cars, purchase and sales of goods, groceries, buying and selling of properties, everything has come online and do you know, that now we can get justice also online. This concept is known as Online Dispute Resolution (ODR). Yes, you have heard it right. Justice, without visiting the public or the civil courts.
Disputes are bound to happen wherever two people interact or work together. It is human nature, and you don’t necessarily have to agree with what everyone says. In our daily lives, we all face minute things, like quarrels, arguments and disagreements but these don’t have as big of an impact as something at work might. When you disagree with your sibling, you will probably not talk for a few hours and then get over it, but things run quite differently in the corporate world.
You start a project for a new client. They appear to be fine. They contact you regularly (sometimes TOO often), and communicate all their requirements with you. Finally, after weeks or months of hard work, you finish the client’s project, wait for your payment...but it never comes. Months pass. All of your emails, letters, and voice messages are ignored, and your once all-too-present client has now vanished.
You’ve tried everything. So what do you do?
The world has been rapidly changing, in the recent times. Something that would have been impossible to even imagine a 100 years ago, is already being used by more than half the population of the world now! Internet has increased the rate at which things change and this can be clearly witnessed when we talk about careers. Freelancing has gained traction in the recent times, and many people are choosing it over conventional jobs.
"Taking precaution is much better than the cure itself". In today’s fast-growing economy where businesses are constantly adapting to changing needs, where is the time to pay attention to every meticulous detail to avoid disputes?
