2010 DHS NO FEAR Act Report (May 2011)

The Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties' (CRCL) Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) and Diversity Division posted the Fiscal Year 2010 No FEAR Act Report on the Department’s website. The report highlights the Department’s most significant FY 2010 accomplishments related to EEO and diversity, which include: the implementation of enterprise-wide data systems to track EEO complaint activity; a 41% reduction in the number of cases awaiting agency merits adjudication; a five-year high for the timely completion of more than 80% of EEO counseling; and the shortest recorded annual average completion time for EEO investigations (213 days) over the past five years.

The Notification and Federal Employee Antidiscrimination and Retaliation Act of 2002 (No FEAR Act) was established to reduce the incidence of workplace discrimination within the federal government by making agencies and departments more accountable. CRCL leads the Department’s Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) programs and efforts to promote workforce diversity, including complaint adjudication and reporting requirements.
