What To Expect from the Employment Discrimination Mediation Process in San Francisco

At Blue Sky Mediation Center, we follow a structured yet flexible process for resolving employment discrimination disputes in San Francisco. Our mediators are experienced professionals who will guide you through every step with care and neutrality.

The process begins with an introductory call during which we learn about the issues from both the employer’s and employee’s perspectives. This helps our mediator understand each party’s core disagreements and concerns. We then schedule the mediation session(s) at a time convenient for everyone involved.

Prior to mediation, both sides provide our mediator with any relevant documentation about the alleged discrimination incident(s). The mediator reviews this information impartially to gain context.

On the day of mediation, the parties meet remotely or in person with the mediator. After opening remarks, each side is given ample time to present their viewpoint and describe how the situation has affected them. The mediator asks questions to further clarify the key points of disagreement.

If needed, the mediator will have private meetings with each party to discuss their interests and explore potential solutions. Throughout this process, we maintain a respectful environment where everyone can speak freely.

As common ground emerges, the mediator works with both sides to craft a detailed settlement agreement that is acceptable to everyone. The goal is to negotiate a fair, lawful resolution that allows you to move forward productively.

Our San Francisco mediators prioritize your comfort and pragmatic needs at each stage. We’re here to facilitate candid dialogue and creative problem-solving.

Common Employment Discrimination Resolutions

The resolutions reached through employment discrimination mediation in San Francisco can take many different forms, as each case is unique. However, some common remedies that may be included are:

Monetary Compensation:

  • Back pay and benefits the employee would have received if not for the discrimination
