Equal Opportunity Programs Division

DNFSB is committed to the principles of equal opportunity in all its programs, policies, and practices and promotes diversity and inclusion in its workforce as well as in its programs and activities.

If you are a Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board (DNFSB) employee or job applicant the law protects you from discrimination because of your race, color, religion, sex (including gender identity, sexual orientation, and pregnancy), national origin, age (40 and older), disability, or genetic information.  The law also protects you from retaliation if you oppose employment discrimination, file a complaint of discrimination, or participate in the EEO complaint process (even if the complaint is not yours).

DNFSB wants you to know that we are continuing to protect your rights under Title VII non-discriminatory employment laws during the COVID-19 crisis, while ensuring that all of our activities are consistent with public health guidelines.  If you feel your rights have been violated or desire to file an EEO complaint, please contact the EEO Manager, Ms. Beverly Johnson, at beverly.johnson@dnfsb.gov or send an email to EEOInfo@dnfsb.gov.

The EEO office manages and administers three major programs: 1. Complaint Processing, 2. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and 3. Affirmative Employment. This office develops and implements policies, procedures, programs, and initiatives under a host of EEO mandates and Executive Orders (EO) in accordance with the Title VII/Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 1614, Section 105 (29 CFR 1614.105).

Civil Rights Act of 1964prohibits discrimination in employment based on race, color, national origin, sex, and religion.

Anti-Harassment Policy Statement

The DNFSB’s Anti-Harassment Program helps the Agency to address harassing conduct that Title VII and related employment non-discrimination statutes seek to outlaw. However, the AHP goes beyond the floor-level requirements of harassment as defined under Title VII to address inappropriate or offensive workplace conduct at the earliest possible level, before it reaches the level of legally impermissible harassment. Ultimately, the AHP assists the Agency not only in fulfilling its management obligations, but also serves as an important means of facilitating the diverse, inclusive, and welcoming workplaces DNFSB strives to maintain.
