What’s the difference between a mediator and a mediation committee?

According to Article 11 of the Act for Settlement of Labor-Management Disputes, upon the request of the applicant, the mediation can be conducted by either assigning a mediator, or organizing a mediation committee. The main differences are the NUMBER OF MEMBERS and the DURATION of the mediation. With the former option, there will only be one mediator and the mediation lasts for 20 days, whereas the committee is composed of at least three members (one appointed by the worker, one by the employer, and 1-3 members appointed by the Department of Labor), and lasts for 42-49 days.
