Federal Government Harassment and Discrimination

EEOC regulations require federal government agencies to help make the Federal Government a model employer by eliminating discrimination from personnel policies, practices and working conditions. The federal government has a high standard towards harassment and discrimination training. Staying in compliance requires an understanding not only of the spirit of these laws and regulations, but also of the various mandated forms of record-keeping and reporting. Furthermore, it requires knowing what information will be useful in demonstrating (after the fact) that your decisions were based solidly on proper business considerations and not on such impermissible factors such as race, age, gender, national origin, veteran, or disability status.
