2016 Federal Election Commission Policy Statement on Non-Discrimination and Equal Employment Opportunity

The Federal Election Commission (FEC) is firmly committed to providing equal opportunity for all employees and applicants for employment regardless of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, sexual orientation, parental status, marital status, political affiliation, or disability. The Agency and its staff endeavors to ensure that all aspects of employment – including hiring, promotions, pay, benefits, assignments, transfers, training, evaluations, awards, discipline and adverse actions – are conducted in compliance with Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) laws and regulations, as well as Commission policies, and that equitable and consistent standards of conduct and performance are applied.

All Commission employees, supervisors, managers, and senior leaders will commit and adhere to sharing the responsibility of maintaining a work environment that is free of discrimination, retaliation, and harassment and to ensuring that all staff members are treated with dignity, respect, and professionalism.

Commission staff will be held accountable for their conduct and performance as public servants. Employees are expected to promptly bring any concerns about discrimination, retaliation, or harassment, in any form, to the attention of management. Such allegations will be taken seriously and managers are expected to promptly and appropriately identify and correct any discriminatory policies, practices, and behavior. Where allegations are substantiated, appropriate action will be taken.

The Commission is firmly committed to creating and maintaining both a high quality work environment for all employees and an Agency that delivers programs and services to all people with utmost fairness, integrity, and equality.

Dated this 2nd day of March 2016. By order of the Commission.


Chairman Matthew S. Petersen
