Equal Employment Opportunity and Other Related Policies
Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Policies
The Marine Mammal Commission has adopted and fully supports a policy against discrimination of any employee or applicant for employment because of age, race, religion, color, disability, sex (including pregnancy, sexual orientation, and gender identity), genetic information, and national origin. This policy includes, but is not limited to, the following: recruitment and employment, promotion, demotion, transfer, compensation, selection for training including apprenticeship, layoff, and termination. The Commission ensures equal employment opportunities. The Commission’s EEO and Affirmative Action Policy is available here.
Other policies under EEO can be found below.
No Fear Act Policy
The Notification and Federal Employee Antidiscrimination and Retaliation Act of 2002 (No FEAR Act), which became effective in 2003, requires federal agencies to take certain actions. These actions are designed to reinvigorate agencies’ longstanding obligation to provide a work environment free of discrimination and retaliation. Under the Act, federal agencies must:
- Post on their website a notice apprising federal employees, applicants, and former employees of their rights and the remedies available under the Act. This notice is available here.
- Submit annual reports setting forth information about their efforts to improve compliance with the employment discrimination and whistleblower protection laws and detailing the status of complaints brought against the agency under these laws.
- Every fiscal quarter, post on their public websites summary statistical data pertaining to EEO complaints filed with the agency over the past five fiscal years.
