The Office of Civil Rights is committed to upholding anti-discrimination and civil rights laws. 

This is the Department of Energy's reporting page for the Notification and Federal Employee Anti-discrimination and Retaliation Act of 2002 (No FEAR Act), Public Law 207-174. Signed by President George W. Bush on May 15, 2002, the Act increases accountability of Federal Departments and agencies for acts of discrimination or reprisal against employees resulting from whistleblower complaints, and complaints before the Merit Systems Protection Board and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

The No FEAR Act requires each Federal agency to post on its public website summary statistical data relating to equal employment opportunity complaints filed against the agency on a quarterly basis during each fiscal year, and cumulative fiscal year end data for the five preceding years.

Visit this link for FY 2013 First Quarter No FEAR data and previous year data.
