US Federal Interagency ADR Working Group Offers Three Guides

The Interagency ADR Working Group which assists federal agencies in the use of ADR, has released three guides relating to mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution:

  1. Protecting the Confidentiality of Dispute Resolution Proceedings provides practical guidance on the application of the confidentiality provisions of the Administrative Dispute Resolution Act of 1996 to federal workplace dispute resolution programs.
  2. A Guide for Federal Employee Mediators provides practical ethical guidance and builds on the September 2005 Model Standards of Conduct for Mediators.
  3. A Guide for Federal Employee Ombuds builds on the Standards for the Establishment and Operation of Ombuds Offices issued by the ABA in February 2004.
    These guides are designed for use by federal employee mediators within the government, but may be models for states to use.
