Ethics and Confidentiality

In Chapter 3 of the Management Directive MD-110, the EEOC established general ethical requirements for neutrals to follow in resolving EEO disputes in the federal sector. The neutral has a duty to the parties to be neutral, honest, and act in good faith. In addition, the neutral must ensure that the ADR proceedings are confidential, consistent with the Administrative Dispute Resolution Act, 5 U.S.C. § 574.
