Cal. Code Regs. Tit. 8, § 20248 - Settlement Conference
(a) At any time after a complaint has issued, either on his or her own motion or upon written request by any party, the chief administrative law judge may schedule a settlement conference to be held before an administrative law judge other than the one assigned to hear the matter and shall notify the parties, including the charging party, of its time and place. Each party attending such a conference shall be represented by a person fully authorized to engage in negotiations for settlement. Clients or principals shall either attend or be available by telephone.
(b) After assignment of a case to an administrative law judge, he/she may direct that a settlement conference be held in conjunction with any prehearing conference or independently thereof. Upon request by any party, the executive secretary shall assign another administrative law judge to conduct the settlement discussions.
(c) Independently of (a) and (b) above, at any stage of a proceeding prior to hearing, if time, the nature of the proceeding, and the public interest permit, all interested parties shall have the opportunity to submit for consideration by the regional director with whom the charge was filed, facts, arguments, offers of settlement, or proposals of adjustment.
