No Fear Act

The intent of the Notification and Federal Employee Anti-discrimination and Retaliation Act of 2002 ("No FEAR Act") is that federal agencies will pay more attention to their EEO and whistle blower complaint activity and act more expeditiously to resolve complaints at the administrative level when it is appropriate to do so.
