|Civil Rights Commission seeking volunteer mediators|
The Iowa Civil Rights Commission is seeking volunteer mediators throughout the state to conduct confidential mediation sessions with parties involving claims of discrimination under Iowa Code Chapter 216 and federal anti-discrimination laws.
Volunteer mediators assist the ICRC in meeting regulatory requirements and contractual mandates with the federal government. The assistance significantly decreases the length of time spent in case resolution and reduces the costs associated with litigation. The purpose is to help the parties reach a compromise without having to go through a full investigation.
If interested, please contact Heidi Johnson, ICRC mediation coordinator, at 515-281-4437.
