Good question. That should have been directly addressed in your settlement agreement. If your lawyer did not specify a date then he/she goofed. If you did not retain a lawyer than you goofed.

Good luck


This should have been spelled out in your settlement agreement. Failure to specify the deadline for payment in the settlement agreement is a significant mistake. You need to insist that your lawyer clear this up. If you did not have lawyer, you need to get one now to deal with this problem.


In my experience, most mediators utilized by the EEOC will demand a specified date for payment in the agreement. I suggest reviewing your papers for it, or even contacting the EEOC.

That said, I tend to see time periods of 60 days meaning that your employer may not be late with complying with the terms of the settlement agreement.
