A payment of the Ombudsman`s expenses and expenses is paid to the Ombudsman at the same time as the signing of this agreement. The unearned amount of these deductions is refunded to the parties. The parties are jointly liable for the costs and costs of the mediator. The responsibility for intermediation and intermediation costs is only between the parties: – This is an agreement between ________im “Ombudsman” to enter into mediation in order to solve the following problems: `10. Fee: The Mediator calculates an hourly rate of $250.00 per hour plus debit and exit fees. Taxes are divided as follows: the plaintiff pays half of the intermediation fee and the defendant pays half of the intermediation fee, or the parties each pay half of the intermediation fee, unless the parties agree to something else in writing before mediation. b) The parties to this agreement agree that all communications and documents produced in this mediation, which cannot otherwise be discovered, will be shared on a non-harm basis and will not be used for discovery, cross-examination, judicial or otherwise, in this proceeding or in any other proceeding.3 The Ombudsman will not disclose the names of the parties or anything discussed in mediation, except that the mediator may disclose such information: it is between the parties and the mediator that mediation is strictly confidential. Mediation talks, draft resolutions and unsigned negotiated agreements are not permitted in any jurisdiction or other contentious proceedings. Only a mediation agreement signed by the parties is thus allowed. The only other exceptions to this confidentiality are when all parties waive confidentiality in writing or in an action brought by a party against the Mediator. The parties agree not to call the mediator as a witness for mediation or to provide documents from mediation as part of a legal proceeding between the parties. Mediation is seen by the parties and the mediator as a settlement negotiation. All parties also understand and agree that the Ombudsman may hold private caucus meetings and talks with each party, all of which are confidential meetings and discussions between the Ombudsman and the disputed party.
4. a) The parties agree that they will not call the mediator or persons connected to ADR chambers as witnesses in a judicial or administrative proceeding on this appeal at any time, before, during or after mediation. To the extent that they have the right to call as witnesses the Ombudsman or anyone linked to ADR chambers, this right is removed. (d) Any party who calls the Ombudsman as a witness, issues a summons to appear against the Ombudsman or requests the production of the Ombudsman renounces his right to rely on and enforce the confidentiality provisions of that agreement, contrary to the Mediator. The parties and the Ombudsman agree that the fee for the mediator is per hour for the time spent with the parties and for the time required to study the documents, research questions, correspondence, telephone call, drafting of final projects and agreements, and do the things carefully necessary to facilitate the full agreement of the parties.
