The Notification and Federal Employee Anti-discrimination and Retaliation Act (No FEAR Act) of 2002 increases federal agency accountability for acts of discrimination or reprisal against employees.

The No FEAR Act requires agencies to post on their public websites statistical data relating to equal employment opportunity complaints filed against the respective agencies.

The Federal Reserve Board's public website contains statistical data in accordance with the No FEAR Act.
