SUBJECT: EEOC Announces the Federal Appellate Settlement Team (FAST)
EEOC recently announced the establishment of the Federal Appellate Settlement Team (FAST) Program, designed to mediate selected appeals filed with the Office of Federal Operations. Participation in the Program is completely voluntary and at no cost to the parties. It appears to be an excellent opportunity to resolve EEO disputes with the assistance of EEOC mediators.
Attached please find EEOC's sample copy of the FAST offer package for your review. We will discuss our participation in the program at a future meeting.
