No FEAR Act Training

The Department of Commerce is committed to providing a safe, professional, and productive environment for all employees.  The Notification and Federal Employee Antidiscrimination and Retaliation Act of 2002 (No FEAR Act) requires Federal agencies to become more vigilant with respect to violations that may occur as a result of antidiscrimination and whistleblower protection laws. 

The No FEAR Act requires Federal agencies to train their employees every two (2) years to ensure that DOC employees understand the Act and other laws making discrimination and retaliation in the workplace illegal. This mandatory training requirement is intended only for Federal employees who, for purposes of the Act, are defined as individuals employed in or under a Federal agency.  Both career and political employees fall within this definition of a Federal employee.
