My ex-employer agreed to mediation with the EEOC when I filed my charge in Oct 2012 for age discrimination. We had a mediation date for May 2013 but he canceled. I looked on EEOC site and it says I must wait 60 days to file lawsuit and I don't have to wait for investigation or right to sue letter. . It's been over 180 days since I filed claim! Does the time start when I file or when the investigation starts? It doesn't seem fair since he used mediation to stall.
I need to find an EEOC attorney in the Atlanta area. Thanks for your answers.
