Discrimination Complaints:

If you believe that you have been discriminated against because of your race, color, religion, sex (including gender identity, sexual orientation, and pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information you have a right to file an EEO complaint. An individual who wishes to file a complaint has 45 days from the date of the discriminatory action to contact the EEO Office.

*If deemed appropriate for the complaint, an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Program , such as mediation, may be offered in lieu of traditional counseling.

Affirmative Employment Program:

The Army must have active affirmative employment programs in place that monitor, evaluate and ensure compliance with Section 717 of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended. To assist in this objective, EEO office conducts workforce trends analysis, examines agency employment practices, policies and procedures, identify barriers to employment opportunities and implement measures to eliminate barriers.

Reasonable Accommodations:

The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 requires Federal agencies to provide reasonable accommodations, or RAs, to qualified employees or applicants with disabilities, unless to do so would cause an undue hardship. 

*To request Personal Assistance in the workplace please contact the EEO Office.

Special Emphasis Programs:

Special emphasis programs promote equal opportunity in the hiring, advancement, training, and treatment of each targeted group. These programs advocate necessary change to overcome barriers that restrict equal employment opportunity for women, minorities and individuals with disabilities.
