3. Voluntarily: Mediation is voluntary. Either party may withdraw or suspend mediation at any time and for any reason. In addition, the Mediator may suspend or terminate the mediation if he or she considers that the mediation will lead to an unfair or inappropriate result; an impasse has been reached; or that it can no longer effectively play its supporting role. In his only way, after the first conclusion of the mediation, the Mediator may take action with one or more of the parties if the Mediator considers that there may be more potential for movement or comparison. 7. Jurisdiction: The parties will be personally present at the mediation. Business units are represented by a senior with the power of resolution. In addition, information relating to fraud and criminal activities or the threat of imminent harm during such mediation shall not be considered confidential.
There are links to three written agreements. Each agreement is different and, in some cases, no written agreement is concluded, so it only serves to illustrate. For accessibility reasons, the following agreements have been typed, but they are usually written and distributed informally before the parties leave the mediation. . . .
