Charges that would not be eligible for mediation include class and system fees, charges filed under the Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act, or charges filed solely under the Equal Payments Act. EEOC also has the power to withhold mediation costs if it serves the public interest in investigating the charge. AOUs are confidential unless an employer has agreed to make the agreement public. EEOC is authorised to use the names of employers in connection with the employer mediation programme included in this list of national placement agreements. Your employer can agree to participate in the mediation, whether or not they have signed an AMU with EEOC. If a solution is found during mediation, the allegation of discrimination is resolved by a settlement agreement. .
