Equal Opportunity and Civil Rights Resources

The Equal Opportunity Staff is available to provide additional resources to employees and partners in the areas of Civil Rights and Diversity. It collaborates with the ARS Office of Outreach, Diversity, and Inclusion in several areas.

No Fear Act

The primary purpose of the No FEAR Act of 2002 is to improve Federal agency accountability for violations of the anti-discrimination and whistleblower protection laws related to employment and to ensure that employees, applicants for employment, and former employees know their rights under anti-discrimination laws and the Whistleblower Protection Act.

For more Information about the No Fear Act, including data, annual reports, and resources can be found on the USDA No Fear Act Data Posting.
