SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Back to Top

In November and December of 2008, the Commission's Headquarters relocated from 1801 L Street, NW., Washington, DC 20507 to 131 M Street, NE., Washington, DC 20507, and the Commission's Washington Field Office relocated from 1801 L Street, NW., Suite 100, Washington, DC 20507 to 131 M Street, NE., Fourth Floor, Suite 4NW02F, Washington, DC 20507. Telephone numbers for Commission employees have not changed. In addition, the Commission's Office of Federal Operations began using a new post office box effective December 1, 2008: P.O. Box 77960, Washington, DC 20013. The previous post office box address will remain in effect temporarily, but individuals wishing to file appeals, petitions, notice, etc. under 29 CFR Parts 1603 and 1614 with the Office of Federal Operations via mail should begin using the new post office box address now. This Final Rule modifies 29 CFR Parts 1601, 1603, 1605, 1610, 1611, 1612, 1614, 1615, 1621, and 1626 to reflect the change of address.

Regulatory Procedures Back to Top

Executive Order 12866

This action pertains to agency organization, management or personnel matters and therefore is not a rule within the meaning of section 3(d)(3) of Executive Order 12866.

Paperwork Reduction Act

This regulation contains no new information collection requirements subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget under the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. chapter 35).

Regulatory Flexibility Act

The Commission certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because it does not affect any small business entities. The regulation affects only the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. For this reason, a regulatory flexibility analysis is not required.

Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995

This final rule will not result in the expenditure by State, local, or tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the private sector, of $100 million or more in any one year, and it will not significantly or uniquely affect small governments. Therefore, no actions were deemed necessary under the provisions of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995.

Congressional Review Act

This action pertains to the Commission's management, personnel and organization and does not substantially affect the rights or obligations of non-agency parties and, accordingly, is not a “rule” as that term is used by the Congressional Review Act (Subtitle E of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (SBREFA)). Therefore, the reporting requirement of 5 U.S.C. 801 does not apply.
