If so, I would agree, however this excerpt
Nothing in the No FEAR Act
alters existing laws or permits an agency to take unfounded
disciplinary action against a federal employee or to
violate the procedural rights of a federal employee who has been
accused of discrimination.
Does seem to uphold the original act and its integrity.
ETA: To say that this policy seems like a redundancy to waste everyone’s time and its only real purpose is to call a big meeting about whistleblowing to perhaps dissuade people from coming to forward except for in the most serious of cases.
