Accompanying most U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) charges of employment discrimination is an inquiry from the EEOC’s Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) unit regarding whether an employer would like an opportunity through mediation to resolve the charge with its former or current employee. If both the employer and employee agree, the EEOC ADR unit will have one of its mediators assigned to work with the parties.

If you have not participated in an EEOC mediation (or have) and would like more information, the EEOC ADR unit is presenting a Zoom Webinar without charge to employers and employees.  Marvin Frazier, head of the EEOC’s Miami District Office’s ADR unit, asked me to provide the following information:
