The Notification and Federal Employee Antidiscrimination and Retaliation Act of 2002 ("No FEAR Act")
The No FEAR Act is intended to reduce the incidence of workplace discrimination within the federal government by making agencies and departments more accountable. This law ensures that all Federal employees feel free to come forward with allegations of discrimination, wrongdoing, or misconduct without fear of reprisal.
Signed into law May 15, 2002, the Act requires Federal agencies to be accountable for violations of antidiscrimination and whistleblower protection laws, in part by requiring that each Federal agency post quarterly on its public Web site, certain statistical data relating to Federal sector equal employment opportunity complaints filed with each agency.
Section 301 of the Notification and Federal Employee Antidiscrimination and Retaliation Act of 2002 (the No Fear Act), requires each federal agency to post summary statistical data pertaining to complaints of employment discrimination. The required summary statistical data for EEO complaints filed against the Department of the Army is available below.
