SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: EEO Complaint Forms. OMB Control Number: 1505–XXXX. Type of Review: New Collection. Abstract: Title 29 of the United States Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 1614, directs agencies to maintain a continuing program to promote equal opportunity and to identify and eliminate discriminatory practices and policies. The Department of the Treasury (Department) is thus required to process complaints of employment discrimination from Department employees, former employees and applicants for jobs with the Department SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00133 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 who claim discrimination based on their membership in a protected class, such as, race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, sexual orientation and gender identity), national origin, age (over 40), disability, genetic information, or retaliation for engaging in prior protected activity. Claims of discrimination based on parental status are processed as established by Executive Order 11478 (as amended by Executive Order 13152). Federal agencies must offer pre-complaint ‘‘informal’’ counseling and/or Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) to these ‘‘aggrieved individuals’’ (the aggrieved), claiming discrimination by officials of the Department. If the complaint is not resolved during the informal process, agencies must issue a Notice of Right to File a Complaint of Discrimination form to the aggrieved. This information is being collected for the purpose of processing informal and formal complaints of employment discrimination against the Department on the bases of race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, sexual orientation and gender identity), national origin, age (over 40), disability, genetic information, parental status, or retaliation. Pursuant to 29 CFR 1614.105, the aggrieved must participate in pre-complaint counseling to try to informally resolve his/her complaint prior to filing a complaint of discrimination. Information provided on the pre-complaint forms may be used by the aggrieved to assist in determining if she or he would like to file a formal complaint against the Department. The information captured on these forms will be reviewed by the staff of the Department’s Office of Civil Rights and Diversity to frame the claims for investigation and determine whether the claims are within the parameters established in 29 CFR part 1614. In addition, data from the complaint forms is collected and aggregated for the purpose of discerning whether any Department of the Treasury policies, practices or procedures may be curtailing the equal employment opportunities of any protected group. Forms: TD F 62–03.1, TD F 62–03.2, TD F 62–03.4, TD F 62–03.6, TD F 62– 03.7, TD F 62–03.8, TD F 62–03.9, TD F 62–03.10, TD F 62–03.5, TD F 62– 03.11. Affected Public: Individuals and Households.
