Ever wonder how Federal Government Mediators can help you with your collective and individual workplace disputes? This workshop provides an overview of the mediation and dispute resolution services provided free of charge by the US Federal Mediation & Conciliation Service and the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Find out how these two agencies complement each other to help with a broad range of workplace disputes involving both collective bargaining conflicts and prohibited employment discrimination. Seasoned staffers from each organization will make a brief presentation then take time to answer your questions and give you the 411 on the most effective ways to address a variety of workplace disputes.
