Due to COVID-19, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority said Monday that it has postponed all in-person arbitration and mediation proceedings scheduled through July 3.
Parties that have an in-person hearing or mediation session scheduled through this date will be contacted by FINRA staff to reschedule or discuss remote scheduling options.
Previously, in-person proceedings were postponed through May 31.
The proceedings can be held by Zoom or teleconference meetings, but both parties have to agree or such a meeting has to be ordered by a FINRA arbitration panel, according to FINRA.
“These services provide high-quality, secure, user-friendly options for conducting video and telephonic hearings and sharing documents remotely,” FINRA said.
