    Answered . 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

    Answered . 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.

    Answered . 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.
