10.0 Mediation

In some cases, an independent third party mediator may help resolve disagreements over performance issues.  Further details on mediation are contained in Appendix 2.  Mediation will be proposed only where appropriate and not as a means of absolving managers of their responsibilities.

Mediation is voluntary and will only take place with the agreement of both parties.  Whilst mediation may be advocated by the College, with fuller explanation and encouragement given to its use, there will be no coercion and no punitive consequences to any party as a result of choosing not to undertake this route to resolution.
