Department of Justice Non-Retaliation Policy
The Office of the National Ombudsman of the U.S. Small Business Administration has asked all Federal agencies to make clear that, if a small business entity requests Ombudsman assistance on a matter or otherwise questions or complains about a Federal agency action, the agency will not retaliate in response. The Department of Justice is committed to fair regulatory enforcement practices, supports the right of the regulated community to raise concerns about regulatory enforcement actions without the fear of retaliation, and will investigate any allegations of retaliation and take appropriate corrective action to ensure it is not repeated. However, while the Department will investigate any allegation of retaliation, a complaint to the Ombudsman will not stop or delay investigations and legal or administrative proceedings as part of the Department's ongoing responsibility to enforce Federal laws. Small businesses regulated by the Department may direct comments regarding regulatory enforcement actions to the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (SBREFA) point-of-contact. The list of agency SBREFA contacts may be found on the Small Business Administration’s Office of the National Ombudsman’s (SBA/ONO) website.
Alternatively, small businesses may choose to contact the SBA/ONO directly by calling 1-888-REG-FAIR (1-888-734-3247), or visiting the Ombudsman’s website.
