We appreciate that workplace rights issues can be stressful to deal with, difficult to manage, and challenging to understand. So when someone calls to speak to our staff about a sensitive workplace issue, we are committed to providing prompt, courteous, and responsive information to help them better understand their rights and responsibilities. 

When we inspect properties to ensure safety and health and disability access, we are committed to working with employing offices to help them understand the law and to provide the information necessary to address any potential violations.

Finally, we strongly believe that understanding the laws incorporated in the Congressional Accountability Act is the best way to prevent workplace conflict, and as such, we are committed to being a vital, educational resource for Congressional Members, employing offices, and legislative branch employees through our publications and training programs.
