Mediation is a voluntary alternative dispute resolution process which is used to resolve complaints. Individuals who believe they have been discriminated against on the basis or race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, physical or mental disability or reprisal must consult an Equal Employment counselor in the Equal Employment Office prior to filing a formal complaint of discrimination in order to try to informally resolve the matter. 

Such contact must take place within 45 calendar days of the date the alleged discriminatory event occurred; the effective date of the alleged discriminatory personnel action or the date the complainant knew or reasonably should have known of the alleged discriminatory event or personnel action.
