On January 27, 2021, the EEOC announced the conclusion of the conciliation and mediation pilot programs that were originally set to last six month.  The agency determined that the mediation program has been a success with over 240,000 mediations, resolving over 170,000 charges and obtaining over $3 billion in benefits for aggrieved parties.  Based on the preference of many pilot participants, the mediation program will incorporate the use of video technology to hold virtual mediations wherever possible.   EEOC will continue to send electronic surveys to program participants and incorporate any feedback on how to improve virtual mediations.
