I filed a claim with the EEOC about being fired on discriminatory grounds (race & national origin). My coworker & i were both tardy at work. We were put on probation. After probation, we were tardy again (him maybe a little more than me) but I was fired and not him. He's white and born here but i'm not. So i filed a claim and the EEOC sent me a letter for mediation. I'd like to know what is a reasonable amount of compensation to request at the hearing? 6-month salary? one year? two years? i have been fired since March and still unable to find a job. What is the average settlement amount at an EEOC mediation?
