The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) complies with applicable Federal civil rights laws and does not discriminate, exclude, or treat people differently on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex (including sexual orientation, gender identity, & pregnancy), religion, age (at least 40 years of age), physical or mental disability, or retaliation (including for prior EEO activity, requesting reasonable accommodation, and opposition to discrimination). Additionally, DHS recognizes parental status as a basis though this is not covered by EEO statutes. Therefore, any complaints on the basis of parental status are processed under DHS policies only.
CISA provides free aids and services to people with disabilities to communicate effectively with us, such as:
- Qualified sign language interpreters
- Written information in other formats (large print, audio, accessible electronic formats, other formats)
If you need these services or information about reasonable accommodation, contact the Office of Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Accessibility (OEDIA) at CISA.OEDIA@cisa.dhs.gov.
If you believe that CISA has failed to provide these services or discriminated in another way because of race, color, national origin, sex, religion, age (at least 40 years of age), physical or mental disability, or retaliation, you have the right to seek counseling from an Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) counselor and raise the matter by contacting OEDIA.Resolutions@cisa.dhs.gov within 45 calendar days of the alleged discriminatory act(s).
Filing an Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Complaint
The law protects Federal employee from discrimination. The law also protects you from retaliation if you oppose employment discrimination, file a complaint of discrimination or participate in the Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) complaint process (even if the complaint is not yours).
If you are a Federal employee or job applicant and you believe that a Federal agency has discriminated against you, you have a right to file a complaint. You can contact an EEO counselor by emailing the agency's EEO Office within 45 days from the day the discrimination occurred.
In most cases the EEO counselor will give you the choice of participating in either EEO counseling or in an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) program, such as a mediation program.
If you believe that any of the actions you are experiencing are a result of discrimination, you have 45 calendar days from the date of the incident to contact CISA’s EEO Office – The Resolution & Equity Division (OEDIA.Resolutions@CISA.dhs.gov) to file an informal complaint of discrimination.
