What is mediation?
Mediation is a term applied to a group of slightly different processes. All of them aim for disputants to make decisions about future actions and potentially reach a mutually agreeable outcome.
Mediation maximises the autonomy and ability of the participants to have themselves heard. The mediator does not make a determination, but allows the parties to reach their own agreement that suits them.
If the matter is ultimately resolved during the mediation then binding terms are able to formally drafted to reflect this decision. If there is no consensus reached then the mediator can assist the parties find another process.
Mediators range from facilitative approach (skill in problem solving but no expertise in the subject matter) to advisory (views on subject matter provided).
Who is involved in a mediation?
Mediation occurs in contexts from colleague to colleague workplace issues to government and corporate multi-national.
Mediation involves the mediator and the parties to a dispute. Depending on the context the parties can also bring a legal representative, friend or support person, although this is not a requirement.
Is the mediation agreement binding?
The mediation agreement represents a contract between parties and is therefore enforceable under contract law.
Agreements can also be drafted in a binding way.
