Mediation Forms: The following forms have been developed for use in workers' compensation cases mediated by mutual agreement of the parties or pursuant to a Court ordered referral. The forms pertain to all mediated cases whether or not a claim for workers’ compensation (i.e. Form 3 or Form 3B) is on file with the Court.

Mediation Agreement: This is a basic mediation form which may be modified by the mediator as necessary to memorialize the agreement reached by the parties, if any.

Report of Mediation Conference: A mediator must use this form to report the results of the mediation conference to the Court Administrator. The form must be sent to the Administrator for each case mediated, regardless whether or not the parties reached an agreement. The reports are required by Court rule and help the Court evaluate the effectiveness of the CMS.
