Employment Compliance Branch | Civil Rights Division | NRCS

The Employment Compliance Branch (ECB) is responsible for administering the Agency's Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Complaints to ensure compliance with Federal statutes that prohibit discrimination in hiring, employment, and program delivery for applicants, customers and employees.  The ECB implements the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Department of Agriculture's EEO policies in processing allegations of employment discrimination.  The ECB monitors and tracks applicants for employment and provides guidance to states preparing their Affirmative Employment Plans.  This information is used to complete the Agency's MD-715 report.  We are comprised of several teams that address the Civil Rights Divisions' goals and initiatives.

Initiatives:

  • EEO Counseling
  • Complaint Prevention
  • Complaint Processing
  • EEO Investigations
  • Trend Analysis
  • Civil Rights Training
  • Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)
