Equal Employment Opportunity

The OCC is committed to ensuring equal employment opportunity to all applicants. We base all employment and promotion decisions on merit, without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, disability, protected genetic information, sexual orientation, parental status, or other non-merit factors.

Consistent with U.S. law, candidates with U.S. citizenship will be preferred over equally qualified candidates who are not. All OCC employees and contractors undergo a security background check upon hiring and periodic security reviews.

Absent an undue hardship, OCC will provide reasonable accommodation for qualified individuals with a disability. To request a reasonable accommodation as an applicant or employee with a disability, contact Kelly Battista, OCC's Disability Accommodation Coordinator, Office of Minority and Women Inclusion or call (202) 649-6636.

If you are an employee or applicant for employment and feel that you have been discriminated against, you can file an EEO Complaint. Learn more, read
