Equal Employment Opportunity
Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) is a fundamental NRL policy for all employees regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, sex (including pregnancy, gender identity and sexual orientation), age (40 years and over), disability (mental and physical), genetic information and reprisal (for participating in EEO activity). The NRL EEO and Diversity Program Office is a service organization whose major functions include counseling employees in an effort to resolve employee/management conflicts, processing formal discrimination complaints, handling requests for reasonable accommodations, providing accommodations, providing EEO training, and managing NRL’s MD-715 affirmative employment program. The office is also responsible for sponsoring and recognizing special emphasis observances to promote awareness and increase sensitivity and appreciation of the issues or the history relating to females, individuals with disabilities and minorities.
Federal Laws prohibit workplace discrimination and are enforced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). These are passed by Congress and signed by the President.
For a complete list of laws enforced by EEOC visit their website.
It is NRL's policy to provide reasonable accommodation to qualified employees and applicants with disabilities. An effective reasonable accommodation policy is an important aspect of the Department of the Navy's commitment to create employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities.
