Mediation is a negotiation process and not an adjudicatory process. The mediator facilitates the process. Parties participate directly in the resolution of their dispute and decide the terms of settlement. Procedure and settlement are not controlled, governed or restricted by statutory provisions thereby allowing freedom and flexibility. A binding settlement is reached only if parties arrive at a mutually acceptable agreement. Collaborative in nature as focus is on the present and the future and resolution of disputes is by mutual agreement of parties irrespective of rights and liabilities.
