Mediation is a procedure where the parties attempt to informally solve disputes they may have with the insurance carrier or self-insured employer.  At the mediation the parties may appear pro se (without an attorney), with an attorney, or with another representative, including a union representative.  The other side may appear with their attorney or representative.  The mediation is conducted by a trained mediator provided by the Division of Workers’ Compensation at no charge to the claimant.  Mediation is not a commonly used alternative dispute resolution procedure.  Most parties elect the settlement conference option so that they have access to the services of a prehearing ALJ.  (Section 8-40-201(12), 8-43-205, C.R.S).
