What are the values of mediation?
The University is committed to ensuring the mediation service is:
- Impartial – Mediators do not take sides, make decisions or recommendations, the power to make decisions is with the individuals involved.
- Confidential – no personal records will be kept or passed to HR. Mediators and parties agree not to discuss what takes place during mediation sessions with anyone else without prior consent.
- Informal – taking part in mediation will not affect your right to raise a formal complaint if you wish to do so.
- Voluntary – It’s your choice if you wish to take part in mediation.
