Allegations of discrimination may be resolved at any time during the investigation. EEOC investigators are experienced in working with the parties to reach satisfactory agreements. You should contact the investigator if you are interested in resolving your charge by settling scores. To have an enforceable solution to an EEO case, the terms of the settlement agreement must be signed in writing and signed by the parties. On the other hand, the parties are encouraged to be creative in resolving a labour dispute and may agree to settle a different legal action than a court might order as long as it is not greater than what a court might order. 840 (1976), the Supreme Court held that federal employees had the same rights as private sector employees under workplace discrimination laws, which recognized the right of federal employees to enter into voluntary agreements with federal authorities. Accordingly, Section 717 of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 allows agencies to arrange for the resolution of EEO disputes with a view to resolving such claims. The same analysis applies to disputes under section 501 or 505 of the Rehabilitation Act 1973, section 15 of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act 1967 and the Equal Pay Act.
