DMEO: Complaint Process : Sexual Orientation Discrimination Complaints
Sexual orientation discrimination complaints may not be processed under the complaint procedures established by the Equal Employment Opportunity Regulation (29 C.F.R. 1614), "Federal Sector Equal Employment Opportunity." However, DODEA employees and applicants may use the applicable administrative or negotiated grievance procedures to address issues of sexual orientation discrimination.
For more information, see the OPM booklet, Addressing Sexual Orientation in Federal Civilian Employment: A Guide to Employee's Rights.
To file claims of sexual orientation contact your local Human Resources office.
