Class,What do you do with this outward expression of Bill’s implicit bias, as well as Mary’s?According to IAT Corporation (2011) I was neutral in the test/study I took; therefor, I believe I could participate in this mediation. I would stop the session immediately and caucus with Bill because regardless of the “good cop”, “bad cop” technique being used, statements of prejudice are not allowed under any circumstances. I would then speak to the parties and apologize for theconduct of my co-mediator. Do you ask to caucus with Bill?I would caucus with Bill to address his violation of mediation standards. He violated the standards of conduct by siding with a party and making a prejudice statement. “A mediator shall conduct a mediation in an impartial manner and shall avoid conduct that gives the appearance of partiality toward or prejudice against a party.” (American Arbitration Association, 2005, p.4). Do you terminate the mediation because the issue may not be able to be addressed fairly? Do you caucus with Joe to suggest he discontinue the mediation and think about having every worker at the restaurant attend a sensitivity training?
