The Notification and Federal Employee Antidiscrimination and Retaliation Act of 2002 (No FEAR Act)

The No FEAR Act requires Federal agencies to notify their employees, former employees, and applicants for employment of their rights and protections under Federal antidiscrimination, whistleblower and retaliation laws. The Act also requires that agencies train employees regarding the rights and remedies under those laws.

The United States and its citizens are best served when the Federal workplace is free of discrimination and retaliation. In passing the No FEAR Act, the Congress noted that it is essential that the rights of employees, former employees and applicants be steadfastly protected. The Congress also stated that agencies cannot be run effectively if they practice or tolerate discrimination. The notification and training provisions are intended to increase Federal agency compliance with the laws.
