EEO Laws and Policies

The authority under which the Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties (CRCL) directs the Department's EEO activities comes from a variety of legal sources, such as statutes and regulations passed by Congress, Executive Orders signed by the President, and policies issued by the Secretary of Homeland Security.


(All statutes also ban reprisal based on participation in or opposition to covered EEO activity.)
