button High Hopes for ADR from the Seattle District Office of EEOC!
     The Seattle district office of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) hopes and expects great success from its initiatives in alternative dispute resolution / mediation, according to Michael C. Fetzer, deputy director of the Seattle district office. At both the national and district office level, the EEOC has been exploring ways to incorporate the benefits of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) into the handling of charges of discrimination. Since ADR represents a departure from the EEOC's historic charge - handling process, Fetzer says the EEOC wants to be sure employers are aware of this option. The only charges filed with the Seattle district office that will not be eligible for mediation are those that fit the enforcement priorities of the Local Enforcement Program (LEP) established by the office.
