Cummings Act Notices

On January 1, 2021, Congress enacted the Elijah E. Cummings Federal Employee Antidiscrimination Act of 2020 or the Cummings Act. The Cummings Act amended the No FEAR Act to expand accountability of the Federal sector EEO process. As part of this effort, the Cummings Act requires Federal agencies to post notices of EEO violations determined by the agency, the EEOC, or a civil court, after all appeals are exhausted.

Agencies must publish such notices for one year.
