Federal law and USAID policy prohibit discrimination, harassment, and EEO-related retaliation in the workplace in all employment-related decisions, including, but not limited to, recruitment, hiring, training, development and advancement, benefits, employee engagement and retention, and separations. Members of USAID’s workforce and applicants for employment who believe they have been subjected to discrimination or retaliation—or who are seeking additional information about their EEO rights and responsibilities—should contact the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) or an EEO Counselor at EEOcomplaints@usaid.gov within 45 days from the date the discrimination was believed to have occurred, or when they became aware of it, or, if the discrimination involved a personnel action, from the date the action took effect.

Further, USAID does not tolerate workplace harassment, including sexual harassment, of any kind and will address such misconduct before it becomes severe or pervasive enough to be unlawful. We encourage all members of USAID’s workforce to promptly report suspected or alleged harassment to OCR at ocrharassment@usaid.gov.
