The No FEAR Act

The No FEAR Act  promotes affirmative employment and fights employment discrimination within the DOT.

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.
