As guardians of the mediation process, mediators of governmental disputes have a special interest in addressing the natural tension that exists between confidentiality of the process and the public interest considerations behind Florida’s Sunshine laws. Mediators face ethical obligations and practical considerations as they navigate through governmental mediation. Sunshine law may play into more than traditional disputes involving governmental entities. The Sunshine Laws may apply to mediation of disputes involving labor unions, private organizations, and even individuals to whom decision-making authority has been delegated. This workshop will: 1) Provide an overview of the Sunshine Law; 2) Provide an update of Sunshine Law issues in traditional mediation and mediation within the Collaborative Law framework; and 3) provide practical tools for complying with Sunshine Law requirements in traditional mediation and meditations within the Collaborative Law framework. Additional information may be requested.
