The Congressional Accountability Act (CAA) of 1995 established the Office of Compliance to enforce several federal workplace and public access laws in the legislative branch through programs of dispute resolution, investigation, and education. OOC's interactive training currently covers modules on preventing sexual harassment  and disability discrimination in the congressional workplace.

In addition to these responsibilities, Section 102(b) of the CAA requires the Board of Directors  of the OOC to review the CAA every two years and recommend to Congress changes that should be made to the CAA in order to advance safety and health and workplace rights in Congress. Details are in the Section 102(b) Reports.

The OOC reports annually on its activities and the use of the Office by covered employees.
