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. 1. The Mediator shall be a neutral mediator who shall assist the parties in reaching their own agreement. The Mediator will not make a decision with respect to the parties on how the case should or should be resolved. These agreements are usually a brief summary of important issues on which the parties have agreed and use the parties` own words to describe in detail how they have decided to move forward. Agreements are absolutely confidential and can be used to run people`s memories when they return to the workplace. Since agreements are confidential, they are not legally binding and cannot be mentioned in future proceedings. In most mediation cases, the parties involved enter into a number of agreements that will help them cooperate more effectively.
4. a) The parties agree that at no time, before, during or after the mediation will they call the Mediator or any person related to ADR Chambers as witnesses in any legal or administrative proceedings concerning this dispute. Insofar as they have the right to call as witnesses the Ombudsman or any person related to ADR Chambers, this right is thus abolished. 2. Legal representation: the Ombudsman does not offer any legal advice and does not represent any of the parties. The parties must use their own lawyer for legal advice. Where the Mediator is the subject of an assessment of a question of law or assistance in the preparation of a settlement agreement, such assessment or assistance in the preparation of that contract is in his role as mediator and does not constitute legal advice to a party or representation of a party. 1. Appointment and Objectives: By this Agreement, the Parties appoint Tad Powers/Michael Marks as the mediator for their negotiations. The parties understand that the mediator`s objective is to help the parties reach a fair and constructive agreement, which will resolve their dispute in a collaborative, consensual and informed manner. The Mediator is neutral in this dispute. .
