No Fear Act

On May 15, 2002, President Bush signed the Notification and Federal Employee Antidiscrimination and Retaliation Act of 2002 (No FEAR Act) into law. The No FEAR Act, with an effective date of October 1, 2003, requires Federal agencies to be accountable for violations of antidiscrimination and whistleblower protection laws.

Section 301 of the No FEAR Act requires each agency to post quarterly on its public Web site certain summary statistical data relating to equal employment opportunity complaints filed against them under 29 C.F.R. Part 1614.

The US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) issued rules regarding posting of Equal Employment Opportunity complaint processing data. Those rules include posting summary statistics for the current fiscal year on a cumulative (year-to-date) quarterly basis and statistics for each of the preceding five years.
