In 2002, the Notification and Federal Employee Antidiscrimination and Retaliation Act (also known as the No Fear Act) was signed into law.
The law provides additional protection under existing discrimination, retaliation, and whistleblower laws for federal government employees. Transparency and accountability are at the heart of the Act and serve to strengthen existing laws.
The law requires federal agencies to:
- Provide training on the Act to every employee every 2 years and within 90 days of hire for new employees.
- Notify employees of their rights under the Act.
- Post notices that show findings of discrimination.
- Publish data showing complaints and outcomes.
Additionally, federal agencies are required to pay back the Department of the Treasury for awards, judgements, and settlements involving their organization.
This brand-new course will teach federal government employees and agencies the crucial information they need to know about the act.
