Dispute resolution company, FairWay Resolution, has developed a uniquely New Zealand approach to family dispute resolution (FDR) that is underpinned by the cultural needs and values of the parties to a family dispute.
As we come to the end of Māori Language Week it strikes me how much of our Māori tikanga applies to the practice of mediation. A hui is a meeting where people meet to settle differences through discourse. Agreement is reached by consensus and if no agreement can be reached at that particular hui a further hui will be called.
FairWay is pleased to announce that it endorses the Australasian Faculty of Occupational and Environmental Medicine’s Consensus Statement on the Health Benefits of Work.
At the heart of this consensus statement regarding the health benefits of work is a shared desire to improve the welfare of individuals, families and communities. We acknowledge the fundamental principles about the relationship between health and work.
FairWay as New Zealand’s largest provider of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) services is proud to support the profession by announcing that it is the principal sponsor of the Arbitrators and Mediators Institute of New Zealand (AMINZ) 2014 conference – “Looking Forward”. FairWay will also provide several key staff as presenters or chairing a session.
