How to Win in EEOC Employment Discrimination Mediation
When it comes to an Equal Opportunity Employment Commission (EEOC) mediation, there are a few ways to improve your overall chances of coming to a favorable resolution.
An EEOC mediation comes about after an EEOC charge is filed. If both parties agree to participate, then the EEOC may hold a mediation. An EEOC mediation has the potential to resolve an EEOC employment discrimination complaint without needing to move to litigation. Coming prepared with an EEOC lawyer, reasonable expectations, and the correct paperwork makes all the difference.
From working with an experienced EEOC lawyer to approaching an EEOC employment discrimination with a professional attitude, we will discuss some meaningful tips below on how you approach your EEOC mediation.
Work with a Qualified EEOC Lawyer
When it comes to an EEOC employment discrimination complaint, working with an experienced EEOC lawyer is especially important. Filing an EEOC employment discrimination complaint does not necessarily mean that your case will move to litigation in court. So you might wonder what an EEOC lawyer can do in relation to an EEOC mediation.
An EEOC lawyer can offer insight, counsel, and maximize the potential of a favorable outcome from an EEOC mediation. And while hiring an EEOC lawyer is not required, either party involved in mediation is permitted to have one.
An experienced EEOC lawyer, like those with the Friedmann Firm, has an understanding of employment law. Employment law ranges from the federal level to the state level and can often be complex.
The employer who comes into an EEOC employment discrimination mediation will likely have their own attorney. So working with an EEOC lawyer early on ensures that you have your own representation going into the mediation. You will want to be on the same playing field as the employer.
Prepare Relevant Documentation for Your EEOC Employment Discrimination Mediation
When you go into an EEOC mediation, another key factor is to make sure that you have prepared all of the relevant documentation. While, ideally, employers will be honest during an EEOC mediation, it is best to go in fully prepared to correct them if necessary.
An EEOC lawyer will be able to help you identify information and documentation that can be useful to have on hand during an EEOC mediation as well. They can help to identify any documentation like emails, paperwork, and other documents that are relevant to your EEOC employment discrimination complaint.
Approach the EEOC Mediation Prepared
Once the EEOC mediation is set to occur, be sure to approach it as prepared as possible. An EEOC mediation can occur during an EEOC employment discrimination investigation or conciliation, so working with an EEOC lawyer to get all of your information prepared can ensure that you go into the mediation ready at any time.
An EEOC mediation will be handled by a mediator, who will attempt to help both parties come to an amicable resolution. So, go into the mediation with the same professional approach that you would have in a court proceeding.

Rachel and Dominick were incredibly helpful throughout the entire process. They got back to me quickly, whenever I had questions, which helped me stay calm during a very stressful time. Rachel was confident in her abilities and knowledge of the labor laws, and she was able to secure a settlement for me. If you ever find yourself in a situation that requires you take action against an employer, I would highly recommend the Friedman Firm. There's no one I would recommend more to be in your corner.
If you are in need of an employment attorney, this is your sign to talk to Rachel and Jamie. Amazing!! They handled my case like the true professionals they are! They stuck to a strategy, even when it seemed like it wasn’t going our way and BAM! We get the outcome we wanted. I couldn’t be happier and I will always return to them if I EVER have an employment issue again. Thank you so much for helping me and my family!
Dedicated! Thorough! Detailed! Professional! Personable! I can keep going with the many qualities Pete and his team have. I highly recommend him!!! You won't be disappointed.
I needed an employment lawyer to work through a non compete. Pete at The Friedmann Firm was listed as one of the three best rated employment lawyers on a local website. I called him in the morning and later that night he was on the case and provided sound council through a very tense negotiation. Don’t take a chance with your career, reach out and get good council. Pete was very responsive every step of the way and delivered positive results. I highly recommend Pete and his Firm!
Rachel was top-notch from start to finish. She was responsible, professional, quick to respond to emails, texts or phone calls. She gives it to you straight, which I prefer! She thinks outside the box and is definitely the dog you want in the fight for you. She does not waste time and immediately dives right in to get the best results she can for you. I would highly recommend Rachel and her firm to anyone who wants to get the job done right, the first time, in a professional, compassionate and decisive manner.
My wife used this firm for a matter she had with her former employer. She could not have been more satisfied with their services. They were timely in responses, courteous, and very thoughtful. This was a difficult process for her and Pete made it so much easier by handling all of the details of her case.
Rachel Sabo of The Friedmann Firm believed in me when no one else did & helped me through every step of my legal process. Very happy with the firm’s professionalism & dedication to my case.
I called them with some questions about my employment and Jamie was very helpful. I didn’t need an attorney to handle a case for me - only to help me navigate an issue I was having at work. She answered my questions and I felt she truly listened to me. I’d recommend this firm to anyone looking for an employment lawyer. Thank you!
Pete resolved issues I was having with my employer in a quick and favorable manner. He is also easy to talk to and understands his clients rights AND needs. You’d do right to call The Friedmann Firm.
I had a terrific experience with Rachel. She handled my case in a very professional manner. She made herself available and always kept me updated. Her knowledge of the law is incredible. She took the time to educate me on the legal processes so I understood what was happening with my case. Thank you Rachel for helping me navigate a most difficult situation. I am so thankful to have had you as my attorney. You have my highest recommendation.
