EDI has compiled helpful information to assist NIH Employees effectively during the pandemic. Continue to follow our updates regularly for the latest information.
To ensure the safety of our employees and the NIH community we are requesting limited access to our office. If you have questions or feel that you are being discriminated against you can contact us to start the process over the phone at 301.496.6301, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or through our online system at https://nihefile.icomplaints.com. All of these mechanisms minimize the health risks to agency employees and the public while ensuring that no employee or applicant would lose their rights under EEO regulations. Preserving access to being able to file a complaint of discrimination is important because the laws for filing a complaint of discrimination have regulatory deadlines to ensure timeliness.
If you are a qualified individual with a disability who needs a change or modification to your work environment or procedures to enable you to perform your essential duties, please contact our Access & Equity Team to submit a request for an accommodation. To learn more, please read our blog: Pandemic Preparedness in the Workplace and the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Education and Outreach
All diversity and inclusion training will be conducting online via WebEx. This enables employees to meet the annual anti-harassment training requirement, increase their diversity and inclusion knowledge, and comply with the current physical distancing guidelines. All training offerings fulfill the No FEAR and Prevention of Sexual Harassment (POSH) requirements. Additionally, classes specifically designated for supervisors offer Continuing Learning Points (CLP). To view the 2020 course offerings or register for classes, please visit Training Calendar or the Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion’s (EDI’s) website.
