No FEAR Act

On May 15, 2002, Congress enacted the “Notification and Federal Employee Antidiscrimination and Retaliation Act of 2002,” which is known as the No FEAR Act.

The No FEAR Act is intended to increase the accountability of federal agencies for acts of discrimination or retaliation against employees, former employees, and applicants.  It requires CFPB to post a notice of rights and protections available under Federal antidiscrimination and whistleblower protection laws and to post certain equal employment opportunity data.

The data includes:

  • Summary of complaints filed in each fiscal year
  • Summary of complaints pending in each fiscal year
  • Summary of investigations completed
  • Summary of complaints dismissed
  • Final actions issued by CFPB involving a finding of discrimination
    • Final actions issued without an EEOC hearing
    • Final actions issued after an EEOC hearing
  • Average time taken to complete investigations and final action
