Footnote 259

In light of the expense of litigation, many employers feel pressured to settle for nuisance value. See Mayer, supra note 44, at 156; see also Silver, supra note 46, at 542-43 (noting that employers who have not discriminated may make concessions to employees in mediated settlements). But cf. Yelnosky, supra note 56, at 603 (finding that high respondent satisfaction rates in EEOC mediations "suggest employers were not unduly pressured to settle baseless charges.").
