EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY (EEO) PROGRAM

The Federal EEO program began under the Equal Employment Opportunity Act of 1972 (Public Law 92-261) and is designed to ensure fair treatment to all segments of society without regard to race, religion, color, national origin or sex, pursuant to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) and section 501 of the Rehabilitation Act added nondiscriminatory employment coverage based on age and physical or mental disability, respectively. The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 (GINA) protects employees and applicants for employment against genetic discrimination. EEO programs include affirmative action for employment as well as discrimination complaint processes and remedies.

Fairness, diversity and inclusion are key principles for the Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency. We are committed to:

  • providing equal employment opportunity;
  • eliminating discrimination in employment because of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, or disability;
  • maintaining a work environment which is free from any form of unlawful discrimination, including sexual harassment;
  • promoting a progressive affirmative action program for achieving a representative workforce; and
  • providing a prompt, fair, and impartial review and adjudication of discrimination complaints.

If you are a current employee of the Court Services and Supervision Agency, a former employee, or an applicant for employment and you believe that you have been discriminated against in a personnel practice or in the terms, privileges or conditions of your employment, you may file an EEO complaint. The EEO discrimination complaint process provides a means to resolve individual employment problems relating to issues involving race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age (40+), disability, and/or reprisal. Please first contact an EEO Counselor or the EEO Office at (202) 442-1680.
