10 Reasons to Mediate
Click on the yellow bar above and allow blocked content to display this video.
The video 10 Reasons to Mediate introduces businesses to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's (EEOC) National Mediation Program. Mediation is usually a preferable alternative to a traditional EEOC investigation and to enforcement and litigation steps that may follow. Mediation allows the parties involved in a charge of discrimination to resolve their differences quickly and amicably without a determination by the EEOC on the merits of the case.
Hear from other employers who already have participated in the EEOC's voluntary National Mediation Program and believe that you should, too, if a charge is filed against your company. We encourage you to watch this video, to share it with colleagues in your community, and contact us with any questions you may have.
You can download a CD-ROM disk image and create your own CD-ROM (please refer to your CD-ROM writing software's documentation for instructions). The CD-ROM, which you are free to copy and distribute, includes the video and its own video player software, and will run automatically when placed in the CD drive of a computer running Windows. The video runs 14 minutes and is open captioned.
You can also download the video file without the player, if you want to watch the video without creating a CD-ROM. This is the better option if you want to email the video or place it on an intranet site.
