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.

My experience with the Friedmann Firm is an absolute 5 stars. From my very first call with Karen, to all of my communication with Rachel, everything exceeded all of my expectations. Rachel and Karen were so caring and understanding in a very sensitive situation. They responded immediately to any questions or concerns I had. I would HIGHLY recommend the Friedmann Firm. They are caring, professional, understanding, and I would trust them with any issue I have in the future.
Rachel and the Friedmann Firm were fantastic to work with. The thought of needing an employment lawyer was scary for me, it was confusing and complex. But Rachel listened, asked questions and took time to really understand me and my priorities. I felt calm, supported and excited for the first time in weeks after talking to her!! We worked together to review everything, set expectations and meet my priorities! Thanks Rachel and team for all your work!!!
Rachel Friedmann of the Friedman Firm was my attorney for a very recent legal matter. I would highly recommend Rachel based on her legal knowledge, her honest appraisal of the matter and expected outcomes, her open communication and timely responses to my questions and the matter itself, and her steadfastness in dealing with the opposing counsel until a final agreement was reached.
Rachel and her staff went over and above the call of duty to help me achieve fiscal resolution to my legal issue. She wasn’t always available to talk but was always responsive via text and email when in court out of the office and even on vacation. I feel she earned her percentage cut.
Couldn’t be happier with the representation I received from Jamie Bailey on my civil litigation case. She worked tirelessly to resolve the case and in the end negotiated a fair settlement on my behalf. I would highly recommend her to anyone! Thanks for everything Friedman law firm.
Friedman Firm was a great help in a difficult time in my life. They went above and beyond to get me back on track. Rachel was so good to work with and is extremely knowledgeable about the law and employment rights. Can't thank them enough for all there hard work. Highly recommend them to anyone.
The Friedmann Firm (specifically Pete Friedmann) represented me through what seemed like a never ending employment discrimination suit. The suit was filed just before Covid shut everything down in 2020. Add to that a former employer who refused to admit fault. In spite of all of that, Pete stood resolute in his representation of me and working for the best outcome for me. We ended up settling prior to trial and I was more than satisfied with the results. Pete was always available to answer questions and reassure me throughout this process. I highly recommend The Friedmann Firm!
Pete Friedmann and his firm are fantastic. He represented me for more than a year going through a suit with a previous employer. He walked me through every step of the process and was always quick to respond to any questions I had. My settlement came in and we parted ways with both sides being pleased with the outcome. I highly recommend the Friedmann firm and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again in the future if the need arose. Thank you, Pete!
Rachel and the Friedmann Firm have been amazing to work with. Rachel was very helpful, listened to our concerns and took our case. She communicated well throughout and really worked for us. We were very well represented!
I loved working with The Friedmann Firm. Rachel and Jamie are exceptional lawyers and were diligent in reviewing my case and letting me know of my options. Jamie was extremely thorough and handled even the smallest details of my case with ease. The entire process was seamless and they were always quick to respond to emails and calls. I would definitely recommend working with The Friedmann Firm.
I would recommend Rachel Sabo Friedmann and the Friedmann firm for severance negotiations. Rachel was always available and responsive and made an effort to ensure I was updated on every step of the process. Her diligent efforts produced a prompt resolution and we are very happy with the results!
