No Fear Act

On May 15, 2002, President Bush signed the Notification and Federal Employee Anti-discrimination and Retaliation of 2002 (No FEAR) Act into law. The No Fear Act, with an effective date of October 1, 2003, requires that Federal agencies be more accountable for violations of anti-discrimination and whistleblower protection laws.

As Secretary Mineta stated “ . . . Discrimination has no place in the mission of the Department. As Secretary, I am committed to the full implementation of the No FEAR Act in the Department to support the President's Management Agenda and to ensure a supportive, discrimination-free work environment”.
