EEOC Mediations: Evaluating Whether Settlement May Be the Right Option for Your Organization
|Date / Time:
In its 2012 Performance and Accountability Report, the EEOC characterized its historic collections from employers as evidence of enforcing the law more effectively. Shortly thereafter, at a public hearing in March 2013, an EEOC official stated that the agency's alternative dispute resolution (ADR) program presents a "wonderful opportunity to settle" discrimination and retaliation charges.
But is settlement through EEOC mediation always the best course of action for the employer?
Participate in this timely webinar presented by EEO Legal Solutions' founder Merrily S. Archer, where you'll discuss common mediator threats and then compare them to the EEOC's own enforcement data, which will help you make more accurate risk assessments and, by extension, more cost-effective settlement decisions.
- A description of the EEOC's ADR program and its initial goals
- The EEOC's enforcement agenda, recent statistics, and insight into "the money metrics"
- What the EEO Legal Solutions EEOC Mediation Survey reveals about the respondents' dealings during mediation
- An overview of the EEOC's Priority Charge Handling Procedures (PCHPs), and the practical implications of the alphabet soup of A, B, and C charges
- The relationship between the EEOC's ADR program and cause determinations, systemic investigations, and/or litigation
- Practical strategies for effective EEOC mediations, including what every employer should know about judges and juries and
- EEOC "systemic" and "class" investigations
- Best practices for scheduling a mediation, knowing when to walk away without settling, and the one piece of paper you should never leave an EEOC mediation without
- How "Reality testing" can keep you in check
- How to assess the likely benefits of early resolution based on the merits of a particular charge
- What happens if a mediation goes south and the legal battle path that could lie ahead in that case
In just 90 minutes, you'll learn the ins and outs of EEOC mediations so you can make more accurate risk assessments and cost-effective settlement decisions. Register now for this interactive event risk-free.

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!

times and to share it with others in your office.
