(i) the person signed the agreement for mediation; (ii) that the information is otherwise public; or (iii) the person to whom the information is disclosed is a legal or financial advisor to a party in this agreement.12 This agreement can be executed in return. In your clarifying conversations with both parties, before coming to mediation, ask the question of authority, and if the person who does not have authority asks if it is possible for the person involved to be present. b) The parties to this Agreement agree that all communications and documents that are made in this or other proceeding, which are untraceable, are shared on a non-harm basis and will not be used in discovery, cross-examination, in court or otherwise, if the person in authority cannot be present, you will see if the date can be changed to match his or her presence. It also means that everyone sitting around the table can agree on a compromise! This is why most mediations have written in their pre-brokerage agreement (signed by all parties) that those present must have the “payment power.” While this can sometimes be very difficult when institutions and not individuals are involved, i.e. a department head of an organization that may be two or three other senior executives in, but it is quite important to get the final result of mediation, if a page does not have the right to solve something without checking with its boss! 9. The parties will have lawyers present at the mediation. The Ombudsman will not legally represent or advise a party and has no obligation to assert or protect a party`s legal rights and obligations, not to address an issue raised by the parties themselves, or to determine who should participate in mediation.
