The EEO Complaints Process
Federal Law (Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Equal Pay Act of 1963) prohibits employment discrimination and requires Federal agencies to ensure equal opportunity to employees and applicants for employment regardless of their race, color, sex, age (40+), religion, national origin, physical or mental disability or reprisal for prior EEO activities. See Regulations and Guidance.
Additionally, the Department of Health and Human Services has policies addressing allegations of discrimination based on sexual orientation and discrimination alleged by of Commissioned Corps personnel.
The Division of Complaints Management and Resolution (DCMR) of the Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity Management is responsible for managing all aspects of the EEO complaints process. See About DCMR.
