Equal employment opportunity policy

It is the policy of the CFPB to provide equal employment opportunity (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment. The CFPB has no tolerance for workplace discrimination, harassment, or retaliation.  We take all allegations of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation seriously.

We all deserve to work in an environment where we will be treated fairly and equitably, and where we can participate fully in all benefits of employment, including recruitment, hiring, compensation, appraisals, awards, training, career development, promotions, and all the terms, conditions, and privileges of employment.

Accordingly, we’re an equal opportunity employer, and don’t discriminate or tolerate harassment based on:

  • Race
  • Color
  • Religion
  • Sex (including pregnancy, sexual orientation, transgender status, gender identity or expression, gender non-conformity, or sex stereotyping of any kind)
  • National origin
  • Disability
  • Age (40 years or older)
  • Genetic information
  • Parental status
  • Political affiliation
  • Marital status
  • Uniformed status
  • Membership in a labor organization or union activities
  • Prior equal employment opportunity (EEO) or whistleblower activity, or
  • Any other factor unrelated to your merit
