Information for ADR Professionals Interested in Contracting with ODR

The Office of Dispute Resolution (“ODR”) was created by the Colorado Dispute Resolution Act in 1983, Section 13-22-301, et seq., C.R.S.  ODR exists to make available quality, affordable dispute resolution programs and services in the State of Colorado. ODR contracts with mediators and other dispute resolution professionals to provide services to the Colorado courts as needed.

 All mediators who contract with ODR are independent contractors and are solely responsible for the performance of their duties under the contract and for payment of taxes, payment of insurance, etc.  All applicants understand that prior to engagement as an independent contractor for ODR the parties will enter into a separate written contract setting forth the duties and responsibilities of the parties.
