Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Policy

Related Information

    Discrimination Complaint Activity (pursuant to the No FEAR Act): The Notification and Federal Employee Antidiscrimination and Retaliation Act of 2002 (Pub. L. 107-174), also known as the No FEAR Act, requires each Federal agency to post summary statistical data pertaining to complaints of employment discrimination filed against the agency (under 29 CFR Part 1614). The specific data to be posted are described in Section 301 of the No FEAR Act and 29 CFR 1614.704.

It is the policy of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to foster equal employment opportunity and build and maintain a positive work environment through open and collaborative communication and mutual respect. In alignment with this policy, it is the NRC’s goal to prevent and eliminate discrimination for its employees (current and former), as well as applicants for employment, based on various Federal Civil Rights Statutes, Regulations, and Policies.

The NRC works diligently to prevent employees (current and former) and applicants from being subjected to reprisal for either participating in a protected activity or opposing practices made unlawful by the relevant civil rights statutes and regulations. Moreover, the NRC engages in collaborative efforts to prevent and eliminate workplace harassment.
