TOPIC:    Mediating EEOC Discrimination Claims:

An effective alternative for resolving workplace disputes

Investigation and litigation of workplace discrimination claims can be lengthy and disruptive, posing many problems for managers and employees as the process winds its way to a conclusion. The EEOC offers an effective and efficient alternative – Mediation! Come and learn about this process from an EEOC mediator and a panel of practitioners.

Cynthia Locke is an U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Mediator in the Philadelphia District Office where she mediates employment discrimination matters for the agency. Prior to her mediation work, Ms. Locke was a litigation attorney for the EEOC, filing discrimination complaints on behalf of the agency and litigating the cases in federal courts. Ms. Locke is a seasoned mediator, trainer, and a proponent of the efficacy of resolving disputes in order to improve workplaces. She will be joined by a panel of practitioners who have used the EEOC mediation process.
