COVID-19 Mediation

Out of concern for our mediators and constituents, all mediation services provided to our customer agencies will be offered telephonically or through virtual platforms until further notice.  Recognizing this is not the ideal solution for mediation sessions, this is for the health and safety of all concerned, for both the customers’ agencies and the home agencies of our mediators.  In offering telephonic or virtual mediation, we can continue to support the program, provide this valuable service while navigating the current public health issues.
For assistance with telephonic and/or virtual mediations, please contact Mr. Robert Thompson, Commissioner, Federal Mediation & Conciliation Service at: rthompson@fmcs.gov or 316 269-7039.
