Equal Employment Opportunity Policy (EEO) by Tim Gribben, Commissioner of the Bureau of the Fiscal Service
As Commissioner of the Bureau of the Fiscal Service, I'd like to affirm my commitment to the principles of equal employment opportunity and a culture that values fairness, diversity, and inclusion in the workforce. Equal employment opportunity is not only the law, but also a necessity for strengthening our ability to promote the financial integrity and operational efficiency of the federal government through exceptional accounting, financing, collections, payments, and shared services. I rely on advice from the Diversity Advisory Council and the Diversity Action Committee to identify and address challenges in achieving an inclusive work environment. Diversity and inclusion make us better.
All employment decisions at Fiscal Service must be based on business needs, job requirements, and individual qualifications, without regard to race; color; religion or belief; national origin; sex (including pregnancy, sexual orientation, or gender identity and/or expression); parental status; age; physical, mental or sensory disability; family medical history or genetic information; or any other status protected by equal opportunity laws. Discrimination (including harassment) based on these protected categories is prohibited, and retaliation for taking action to stop, oppose or prevent discrimination or harassment in the workplace will not be tolerated.
Employees, contractors, and applicants who believe they have been subjected to unlawful discrimination, harassment, or reprisal, and wish to pursue an EEO complaint, must first initiate the pre-complaint process by contacting an EEO Counselor or an Equal Employment Opportunity and Diversity (EEOD) staff member at (304) 480-6527. If you are deaf, hard of hearing, or have a speech disability, please dial 7-1-1 to access telecommunications relay services.
All managers and supervisors are reminded of their responsibility to prevent, report, and promptly correct unlawful discrimination in the workplace, including harassing conduct. All employees have a duty to avoid unlawful discrimination and harassment, and to report alleged instances for possible investigation. Failing to comply with these obligations may result in disciplinary action, including the possibility of removal. Unlawful discrimination and harassment may be reported to your supervisor, EEOD at (304) 480-6527. or the Workforce Relations Branch at (304) 480-8329. See the Fiscal Service Anti-Harassment Policy and the Employee Conduct Policy for more information.
Thank you for your support in making Fiscal Service a model employer and for the exemplary work you do. Each of us can make a difference if we strive to treat each other with dignity and respect.
EEO Complaint Procedures & Contacts
As a federal employee or applicant for employment, you are protected against discrimination based on your race, sex, national origin, color, religion, age and physical or mental disability. Retaliation for action taken to oppose or remedy discrimination is also prohibited. Certain Executive Orders also provide protection against discrimination based on sexual orientation, parental status, and protected genetic information.
If you feel you have been discriminated against, you MUST contact the EEO Office within 45 calendar days of the date of the incident that gave rise to your complaint, the date you became aware of the incident, or, if a personnel action, within 45 calendar days of its effective date or your knowledge of the action.
The Counselor will advise you of your right to elect between participation in traditional counseling activities or in the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) process. During traditional counseling, the Counselor has 30 calendar days from the time you report your problem to attempt an informal resolution of the matter. If, at the end of this time, the problem is not resolved, you will be advised, in writing, of your right to file a formal complaint. The 30-day period may be extended to an additional 60 if YOU agree in WRITING to such an extension.
If you elect to participate in ADR resolution, traditional counseling will not be attempted. Agencies have 90 days to conduct ADR during the pre-complaint process. If, at the end of this time, the problem is not resolved, you will be advised, in writing, of your right to file a formal complaint.
Any person who believes they have been discriminated against may submit a written complaint to Manager, EEO Office, Bureau of the Fiscal Service, 200 3rd Street, Room 3104, Parkersburg, WV 26106 or contact the EEO Office at 304-480-6231 or 304-480-6527.
