Mediation agreements

Why is a Mediation Agreement Important?
A mediation agreement is important because:
  • It sets out the ground rules
  • Parties can be referred to the ground rules if they start to go off track
  • People know they are making a commitment
  • It gives strength to the mediator to be able to refer to the rules
  • It offers protection to the parties and provides a framework
  • It protects the mediator from liability for actions taken during the mediation
  • It also certifies that no discussions of money laundering are taking place
