ABSTRACT

Office of Congressional Workplace Rights: Using Key Management Practices Would Help to Fully Implement Statutory Requirements, Report to Congressional Committees   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Highlights: "OCWR [Office of Congressional Workplace Rights] is an independent, non-partisan office that administers and enforces various provisions related to fair employment and occupational safety and health within the legislative branch. Responding to concerns about sexual harassment in the workplace, Congress passed the Reform Act in 2018, which expanded worker protections and overhauled the process for resolving workplace claims, including claims relating to discrimination and harassment. [...] The Reform Act includes a provision for GAO [Government Accountability Office] to review OCWR's management practices. This report examines (1) the status of OCWR's efforts to address new requirements in the Reform Act; (2) how OCWR is incorporating key management practices to implement the new requirements; and (3) the extent to which OCWR implemented recommendations from a related 2004 GAO report."
