How you can participate
As a Claimant: Resolve any dispute.As a claimant on PeopleClaim you can file
a claim against any business, professional, government agency, or individual, and
engage them in our unique process of negotiated settlement. Our users have been
able to recover damages, overcharges, get work completed, employment reinstated,
and in some cases change corporate policy.
File to resolve a claim
As a Respondent: Settle claims and complaints quickly, constructively, and
without lawyers or litigation / judgment risk. PeopleClaim helps businesses and
other organizations identify problems and proactively settle fair claims while publicly
responding to claims they disagree with. Most importantly, PeopleClaim can help
you manage your reputation and retain customers by resolving disputes in accordance
with public expectations for fairness and good business practices.
Online mediators: Our online mediator community lets anyone help resolve
disputes by commenting on posted claims and offering solutions that help the parties
reach a fair settlement. Mediators gain experience in negotiating cases, earn points(and
cash in cases where the parties have contributed a settlement award for the best
resolution), and can promote their professional affiliations. Our mediator community
includes lawyers and professional mediators, judges, and ordinary people with a
passion for justice.

Consumers: consumers and businesses can use details from unresolved claims
to better assess product and service providers on the basis of non-anonymous, verifiable
claims. See which providers have the most claims and for what issues. You can also
contact claimants directly to discuss case details or offer help — subject
to user opt-in.
How it works
If you need help resolving a dispute with any counterparty you can file your claim
online then choose to keep it private or post it publicly if unresolved after 10
days. You can invite the mediation community to comment on the fairness of your
claim and offer resolution suggestions to help convince the other party to settle
it fairly and quickly. Claims take on additional significance when other parties
join your claim or file similar claims against the same parties.
Public disclosure of claims helps engage the public, which in turn helps motivate
a fair response and resolution. PeopleClaim works because increasingly businesses
and other organizations are more motivated by maintaining a public reputation for
fair dealing and responsiveness to consumer opinion than by technical law, courts,
or fine-print loopholes.
