EEOC Publishes Federal Sector Quality Practices for Federal Employment Discrimination Complaints

Wednesday, January 18, 2017
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) published Federal Sector Quality Practices (FSQP) ( to address the quality of the agency's hearings and appeals in federal employee employment discrimination complaints. The FSQP also devotes attention to the Commission's role in providing oversight of federal agencies when reviewing affirmative employment and barrier analysis plans, evaluating federal agency complaint processes, and offering technical assistance to federal agencies. It is modeled on the private sector's Quality Practices for Effective Investigations and Conciliations (QEP), created pursuant to EEOC's Strategic Enforcement Plan.

The FSQP was developed by an internal work group, appointed by Chair Jenny R. Yang, that surveyed the workforce to gather information on the hallmarks of quality work and studied commentary on the federal sector, including reviewing General Accountability Office reports; testimony from past Commission meetings; public comments and letters from stakeholders suggesting improvements for federal sector processing. The work group's efforts were refined, and ultimately unanimously approved, by EEOC's Commissioners.
