The Notification and Federal Employee Anti-discrimination and Retaliation (No FEAR) Act of 2002, Public Law 107-174
On May 15, 2002, President George W. Bush signed the Notification and Federal Employee Anti-discrimination and Retaliation Act (No FEAR Act). The No FEAR Act increases the accountability of Federal departments and agencies for acts of discrimination or reprisal against employees.
Section 301 of the No FEAR Act requires each Federal agency to post summary statistical data pertaining to complaints of employment discrimination filed against it by employees, former employees and applicants for employment under 29 C.F.R. Part 1614, “Federal Sector Equal Employment Opportunity.” The specific data to be posted is described in section 301(b) of the No FEAR Act and at 29 CFR 1614.704. The required summary statistical data for formal Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) complaints is provided below.
In addition, section 302(a) of the No FEAR Act requires the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) to post government-wide, summary statistical data pertaining to hearings requested pursuant to 29 C.F.R. Part 1614.706 and appeals filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. That data is also available below. The posting of EEO data on an agency’s public web site is intended to assist Congress, Federal agencies and the public in assessing whether, and to what extent, Federal agencies are in compliance with their equal employment responsibilities.
Prior to March 1, 2003, the FLETC was a bureau of the U.S. Department of Treasury. FLETC’s summary statistical data for the period’s fiscal year 1999 through fiscal year 2003 is incorporated into Treasury’s No FEAR Act report. On March 1, 2003, FLETC became part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The data reported below reflects the status of FLETC’s formal EEO complaints for the fiscal year 2004 through 1st Quarter fiscal year 2015.
