This is an article regarding the Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) mediation process for both federal and private sector (and some state/local) employees. Our law firm represents these types of employees in discrimination, retaliation and sexual harassment cases before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and/or individual federal agency EEO offices. Many private and public sector discrimination or sexual harassment cases that are filed through the EEO process proceed to mediation, but each has slightly different processes and procedures depending on whether your employer is federal sector or private sector.
This article discusses the EEOC mediation process and the potential benefits associated with engaging in that process for both parties involved.
