(c) Impartiality of mediator.
(1) An individual who serves as a mediator under this part—
(i) May not be an employee of the lead agency or an EIS provider that is involved in the provision of early intervention services or other services to the child; and
(ii) Must not have a personal or professional interest that conflicts with the person’s objectivity.
(2) A person who otherwise qualifies as a mediator is not an employee of a lead agency or an early intervention provider solely because he or she is paid by the agency or provider to serve as a mediator.
