Agreement to Mediate Workplace Conflicts
This discussion and any agreement reached are without prejudice
to any party and is a discussion made in pursuit of settlement of
the issues. The memorandum of understanding resulting from these
discussions is not intended to be a legally-binding document, but
rather an expression of the intentions of the parties involved.
Prior to beginning the mediation session, the parties consent to
- All pertinent information needs to be fully disclosed. The more
open and honest people are during the mediation the greater the
possibility of a successful agreement.
- All information disclosed during the mediation session will
remain confidential, unless stated beforehand.
- Given that the mediation process is voluntary, any party or
mediator may terminate the mediation proceedings at any time.
- If the parties request that the mediator prepare written summaries
of the discussion, the hourly rate for mediation will apply to
this additional time. Any other services requested by the parties
will be charged at a rate discussed with and accepted by the parties.
- No party will call the mediator as a witness in litigation or
other proceedings. During the mediation process, the mediator
represents every party's interests and will not take sides.
