The article at this link: https://www.eeoc.gov/newsroom/eeoc-announces-pilot-programs-increase-voluntary-resolutions explains that the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has opened two pilot programs to help with alternative dispute resolution in employment discrimination cases. The mediation program expands the types of cases that may resolved with mediation, and also allows mediation to be an option at several points in the process- much like some tribes do with peacemaking in court cases.

The conciliation program bolsters the agency’s ability to bring businesses into compliance once those businesses are facing charges of noncompliance.
