Federal Manager's Daily Report

The EEOC has announced a free a webinar March 9 on the Elijah E. Cummings Federal Employee Antidiscrimination Act, which was enacted as part of the fiscal 2020 DoD authorization law.

The provisions require agencies to: make EEO offices independent of agency general counsel or human resources offices; better track discrimination and retaliation complaints and post on their websites any findings against them, including through public reporting on agency websites; and better notify employees of their rights and protections.

Also, they prohibit agencies from imposing nondisclosure agreements that would limit an employee’s ability to disclose certain information to the OSC, an IG or Congress; and express the sense of Congress that agencies should take disciplinary action against employees who have been found to have committed discriminatory or retaliatory acts.
