All Unit Commander's, will ensure that EO complaints are properly received by the chain of command, promptly investigated in a fair impartial manner and appropriately resolved without fear of reprisal or retaliation.
Unit Commander's will publish a policy statement on equal opportunity (which includes sexual harassment) to support their Equal Opportunity Program. This statement should include complaint procedures and identify the possible consequences of engaging in discrimination or sexual harassment. The policy statement should be
prominently posted on all unit bulletin boards and discussed by Commander's during leadership training.
Unit Commander's shall assess their command equal opportunity climate within 90 days upon assumption of command. The DEOCS (DEOMI Organizational Climate Survey) measures perceptions and attitudes of command members in regard to discrimination and sexual harassment, as well as organizational effectiveness. The DEOCS is offered on-line or in the traditional paper survey format. The DEOCS is the preferred method used to evaluate the climate of a unit.
