EEOC sets maximum remedies for employment discrimination. For instance, limits on compensatory & punitive damages are $200,000 for employers with 201 to 200 employees and $300,000 for employers with 500+ employees. It is said that in EEOC mediation an employer would never agree to settle for the maximum. Several lawyers who have reviewed evidences of my employment discrimination case say that I have a solid case and if it goes to court it could possibly win over a million. If I go through EEOC mediation, is it likely for the employer to agree to pay close to the maximum allowed? If not, is 80%-90% possible? Has any attorney experienced any EEOC mediation where the employer settled for 80%-100% of the maximum/limit?
