From the Executive Summary: "The purpose of the 'Notification and Federal Employee Anti-discrimination and Retaliation Act of 2002' (No FEAR Act), Public Law 107-174, is to reduce the incidence of workplace discrimination within the Federal Government by making agencies and departments more accountable for violations of anti-discrimination and whistleblower protection laws. Section 203 of the No FEAR Act specifically requires that each federal agency submit to certain Congressional committees and members, not later than 180 days after the end of each fiscal year, an annual report containing the following information on cases brought under federal anti-discrimination and whistleblower protection laws; complaint activity (including Federal District Court cases), resulting disciplinary actions; associated Judgment Fund reimbursements and adjustments to agency budgets to meet reimbursement requirements; and an analysis of trends, causation, and practical knowledge gained through experience. This report covers Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 (October 1, 2018, to September 30, 2019). At the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS or the Department), senior leaders demonstrate a strong commitment to promote equal employment opportunity, abide by merit system principles, provide protection from prohibited personnel practices, and promote accountability. The Department's Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties (CRCL) provides policy and technical advice to senior Department leadership on civil rights and civil liberties issues and directs the Department's Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) and Diversity Management programs."
