How Can I Report Harassment or Inappropriate Conduct?

Reports can be made anonymously, which means the reporting party does not have to identify themselves. However, Civil Specialists will have to follow up on information provided and the reporting party’s identity may become apparent during the administrative inquiry process. Please note that remaining anonymous requires key details about the allegation or concern to be omitted, which will limit the NIH’s ability to conduct an inquiry and take corrective action as warranted. Use the resources below to report an issue:

    Call the Anti-Harassment Hotline on 833-224-3829

    Call the main Civil line on 301-402-4845 


    File an EEO complaint through the Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion by visiting the EDI Resolutions page.

    PLEASE NOTE: If a federal employee wishes to pursue an EEO complaint, they must contact EDI within 45 days of the discriminatory incident in order to file a Pre-Complaint of Discrimination.

    Contact the Office of Intramural Training and Education if you are a trainee or fellow.

    For those who are Deaf, Hard-of-Hearing, or Speech Impaired, the Federal Relay Service provides free telecommunications relay services (TRS).

    If you are not sure and would like to discuss your concerns with an office that operates under principles of confidentiality and are not required to take action, please call:
