EEOC Announces Further Focus on Initial Mediation (EEOC Press Release 7/7/2020)
Mediation is a voluntary, informal, and confidential way to resolve disputes with the help of a neutral mediator who is trained to help people discuss their differences. The EEOC’s ACT (Access, Categories, Time) Mediation pilot, which began on July 6, 2020, expands the categories of charges eligible for mediation and, generally, allows for mediation throughout an investigation. Currently, only certain categories of charges are referred to the mediation program at the beginning of the charge investigation process. The pilot will also expand the use of technology to hold virtual mediations.
