DOL/OSHA RIN: 1218-AC25 Publication ID: Fall 2009 
Title: Procedures for Handling Discrimination Complaints Under Federal Employee Protection Statutes 
Abstract: Section 629, the employee protection provision of the Energy Policy Act of 2005, amended the Energy Reorganization Act of 1978, 42 U.S.C. section 5851. The amendments add Department of Energy and Nuclear Regulatory Commission employees to the employees covered under the Act, as are contractors and subcontractors of the Commission. In addition, Congress added a "kick-out" provision allowing the complainant to remove the complaint to District Court if the Secretary of Labor has not issued a final decision within a year of the filing of the complaint. These are significant changes to the ERA, necessitating immediate revision of the regulations, 29 CFR part 24, Procedures for the Handling of Discrimination Complaints under Federal Employee Protection Statutes, which governs whistleblower investigations under the Energy Reorganization Act of 1978 as well as under the six EPA statutes.
