I am going to an EEOC mediation settlement for a charge of racial/national origin discrimination and retaliation. I also found out that I had received inequitable pay, at least 20% lower than my white colleagues having the same job titles. Should I file a separate Equal Act charge? Or should I try to settle discrimination/retaliation with equal pay altogether? Since I may still have to work in the current company, I was told that I should expect no more than $5000-$10000 for the settlement for discrimination/retaliation. Is it what happens often in settlements?
