Mediation ends in the event of a successful resolution, or in the following situations:
- When it becomes clear that the parties are not going to reach agreement with further discussions.
- Where disruptions, interruptions, or abusive behaviour reaches the level that mediation cannot function.
- Where an allegation of bias on the part of the mediator arises, particularily where the parties refuse to agree that the mediation should continue. Likewise if the mediator discovers a conflict of interest.
