Our mission is to foster civility throughout the NIH community.
Are you aware of a workplace situation involving uncivil behavior? Contact the Civil Program. Uncivil behavior includes:
- sexual harassment
- inappropriate conduct
- bullying or
- other unproductive, disruptive, and/or violent behaviors
Important Note: Raising an allegation with the Civil Program is not equivalent to or in lieu of filing an EEO Complaint of Discrimination, under 29 C.F.R. 1614, or a grievance under the administrative or negotiated procedures included in the applicable Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA). If you wish to pursue an EEO complaint, contact the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Office within 45 days of the discriminatory incident.
Understand your options. Learn more about the difference between the Civil Program and the Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI).
