1614.603 Voluntary settlement attempts.
Each agency shall make reasonable efforts to voluntarily settle complaints of discrimination as early as possible in, and throughout, the administrative processing of complaints, including the pre-complaint counseling stage. Any settlement reached shall be in writing and signed by both parties and shall identify the claims resolved.
Wouldn’t it be nice if the agency made a settlement attempt and you both worked out a settlement agreement? Unfortunately, even when there is direct evidence against the agency, and they know they are in the wrong, they still don’t make the settlement attempt that they are supposed to offer.
If I am wrong, won’t you please comment below.
