Anti-Discrimination (AD) and Anti-Harassment (AH) Policy Statement

Document Posting Date: 
December 6, 2021

This policy prohibits harassment by or of any employee, supervisor, manager, contractor, vendor, applicant, or other individual with whom CBP employees come into contact by virtue of their work for CBP. This policy covers conduct that occurs on duty, off duty, face-to-face, or remotely via electronic means such as telephone, email, social media, and chat application. Moreover, CBP will not tolerate other forms of harassment, disruptive behavior, or bullying in the workplace. Such behaviors go against CBP's core values and negatively impact mission effectiveness. Furthermore, even if an individual's behavior does not rise to the level of unlawful discrimination as defined by Federal law, Executive Order, regulation or policy, it may still violate CBP's Standards of Conduct and may subject the individual to discipline.
