Frequently Asked Commercial Mediation Questions
A: Either you or the Court or the other side may suggest mediation. Once the suggestion to mediate is made, a decision is required whether to mediate or not. There are lots of factors which influence each party’s decision whether to mediate; time, money, cost, perceived likelihood of settlement, desire to find a solution. The list includes a multitude of factors. If you would like to talk through your decision whether to mediate, get in touch with us.
One important issue is the financial consequence of refusing to mediate as a court may subsequently find your refusal to be unreasonable. Ignoring the proposal to mediate means that even if you win at court you may not recover all your legal costs
A: Whether an agreement reached through mediation is enforceable depends on the situation.
At the end of the mediation, the mediator for the parties will draw up an agreement that embodies all the main points of what has been agreed to.
Both parties will sign this agreement and the dispute is ended; it is the responsibility of both parties to adhere to the terms of the mediation agreement.
After the mediation agreement has been decided, the Solicitors if you have one may draw up a more formal document that can be filed with a court in order to make it legally binding.
If no case has been filed with a court, the solicitors can draw up a contract that binds both parties to the agreement.
A: When you attend mediation, you may usually bring anyone with you that you believe will be helpful in coming to an agreement.
The purpose of mediation is for you and the party you are having a dispute with to talk things through, listen to each other, compromise and come up with a plan that works.
You aren’t going to be presenting witnesses or putting on a “case” like you would at a trial, so the people you need to bring with you are those who may help you to come to an agreement at the mediation or whose opinion you will want before you decide to settle.
A: There are a few people you should definitely bring to mediation. These include anyone who you would need permission from before accepting a settlement.
For example, if you work for a company, someone with authority to settle must be there; otherwise the mediator may end the session because no agreement can possibly by reached.
A: Workplace mediation helps you, your colleagues and your employer work through the issues or conflict you have, focusing on a positive outcome for all. It is a pre-requisite that everyone consents to the process and consequently it is a safe forum to have the dialogue you need.
Mediation is there to help improve Workplace relationships.
