On May 15, 2002, President George W. Bush signed into law
the No FEAR (Notification and Federal Employee Antidiscrimination and Retaliation) Act, which increased federal agency accountability
for acts of discrimination or reprisal taken against employees.
One of the requirements of the No FEAR Act is that federal agencies post on their public websites summary statistical data relating to Equal Employment Opportunity complaints filed against the respective agencies.
The United States Coast Guard’s No FEAR Act data is updated on a quarterly basis.
When reviewing the complaint data, it should be noted that the Department of the Treasury conducted the United States Coast Guard’s complaints process prior to FY 2004.
The format of data has changed to follow U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity’s format for FY 06 and FY 07.
U.S. Coast Guard’s data is also included in Department of Homeland Security aggregate No FEAR Act data at www.dhs.gov.
