Sample mediation agreements

In most mediation cases, the parties involved reach some agreements which help them to work together more effectively.

These agreements are usually a brief summary of important issues that the parties have agreed on, and use the parties' own words to detail how they have decided to move forward. The agreements are completely confidential and may be used to jog the memories of the individuals when they return to the workplace. Because the agreements are confidential, they are not legally binding and cannot be referred to in any future procedures.

Mediation agreements might include:

  • Details of how the parties will communicate with each other in the future
  • Commitments to each other about behaviour
  • A summary of any general understanding between the parties
  • What the parties will do if one or both feel that their agreement is not working effectively

There are links below to three sample written agreements. Every agreement is different and in some cases no written agreement is made at all, so these are for illustrative purposes only. For accessibility, the agreements below have been typed up, but they will usually be informally hand-written and distributed before the parties leave mediation.
