The Federal Bureau of Investigation is an Equal Opportunity Employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration. Except where otherwise provided by law, selection will be made without regard to, and there will be no discrimination because of, race, religion, color, national origin, sex, political affiliations, marital status, non-disqualifying physical or mental disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, membership or non-membership in an employee organization, or on the basis of personal favoritism or other non-merit factors.

The FBI welcomes and encourages applications from persons with physical and mental disabilities, and will reasonably accommodate the needs of those persons. The decision on granting reasonable accommodation will be on a case-by-case basis. The FBI is firmly committed to satisfying its affirmative obligations under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 to ensure that persons with disabilities have every opportunity to be hired and advanced on the basis of merit within the FBI.

The Office of Equal Employment Opportunity Affairs (OEEOA) is responsible for managing the FBI’s equal employment programs, policies, and procedures. OEEOA provides the guidance and tools necessary to ensure that the FBI mission is accomplished in an environment free from discrimination, retaliation and disruption.

EEO Policies and Procedures


EEO Policy Statement

Department of Justice Equal Employment Opportunity Framework, 2019-2022


EEO Complaint Processing


OEEOA addresses allegations of employment discrimination, to include personnel actions and decisions based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, genetic information, sexual orientation, gender identity, status as a parent, and reprisal for prior EEO activity. OEEOA also addresses allegations of discriminatory harassment.

There are two phases to the EEO process: the informal counseling process and the formal complaint process.  The EEO process is confidential, and all parties are required to maintain confidentiality throughout the process. If your complaint is not resolved during the informal counseling process, you will have the opportunity to file a formal complaint.

If you believe you were discriminated against during any phase of the hiring process, within 45 calendar days of the date the alleged discriminatory action(s) occurred, or when you knew or reasonably should have known of the discriminatory action(s), please contact the EEO Counseling Program at (202) 323-0911 or email EEO_Counseling@fbi.gov.


Reasonable Accommodations


The FBI provides reasonable accommodations to qualified applicants with disabilities. If you need a reasonable accommodation for any part of the application and/or hiring process, please notify the OEEOA Reasonable Accommodation (RA) Program by either e-mail at REASONABLE_ACCOMMODA@fbi.gov, telephone at 202-324-2158, or fax at 202-324-3976. Your request will receive an individualized assessment.

Federal agencies are required to provide personal assistant services (PAS) during working hours to qualified persons with disabilities, who need assistance with performing activities of daily living that an individual would typically perform if he or she did not have a disability, and that is not otherwise required as an accommodation. You may use the FBI’s reasonable accommodation process to request PAS.

Affirmative Action Plan for the Recruitment, Hiring, Advancement, and Retention of Persons with Disabilities (FY2020)
