Tips for an EEOC Mediation

I am sure no one wants to think of employment problems over the holidays - except lawyers, of course. So take a look at workforce.com's 10-Plus Tips for Succeeding in an EEOC Mediation: Part One after the New Year's parties:

"Simmering-pot employees have turned off, left the organization prematurely,
sabotaged their companies or gone out on extended stress leaves. Some of these
pots, if left unattended, will become the people who file charges with the Equal
Employment Opportunity Commission, alleging discrimination. The best goal for
your organization is to stay out of the EEOC process, and mediation can help you
do that. But if a charge has been filed and you’re before the EEOC, consider
these tips on how to prepare for success in a mediation. In part two of this
article, I’ll suggest some tips for the EEOC mediation itself, as well as some
ideas for steering clear of problems in the future."
