Since 1999, EEOC has mediated more than 50,000 cases with approximately 70% being successfully resolved in an average time of 85 days; nearly half the time it takes to resolve a charge through the investigative process. Additionally, EEOC's experience over the years has shown that 13-20% of mediated cases are resolved based solely on a non-monetary benefit.
"As a result of mediation, we are able to keep our pending EEOC claims to a minimum and avoid the time and money it takes to investigate and respond to a claim,"..."exceptionally worthwhile,"... "I would highly recommend it to any company that has a charge filed against them."

"The EEOC mediation program is a valuable tool and a sound approach for addressing the resolution of administrative charges in the workplace. For this reason, we have entered into a universal agreement at the national level to mediate. We encourage other employers to consider using mediation and we commend the Commission for making the program available."
