OGC supports the development and implementation of the Department’s programs by providing the highest quality legal services to the Secretary of HHS and the organization’s various agencies and divisions.

OGC seeks attorneys to join its Civil Rights Division (CRD) to focus on the civil rights and provider conscience areas of HHS’ legal portfolio. CRD provides legal counsel to the Secretary of HHS and the Office for Civil Rights (OCR), which enforces several federal civil rights laws, including Section 1557 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination Act, Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, the Multiethnic Placement Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act; conscience and religious freedom laws, including the Weldon, Church, and Coats-Snowe Amendments; and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy, Security, and Breach Notification Rules, and the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act.

Each Headquarters Division is led by an Associate General Counsel and each of the ten Regional Offices is led by a Chief Counsel. The eight (8) Headquarters Divisions consist of the following: the General Law Division (GLD), Children, Families and Aging Division (CFAD), Ethics Division (ETH), Civil Rights Division (CRD), Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Division (CMSD), Food and Drug Division (FDD), Legislation (LEG) and Public Health Division (PHD).

The Federal government, as the largest employer in the Nation, can and should show the way towards achieving drug-free workplaces through programs designed to offer drug users a helping hand, and at the same time demonstrating to drug users and potential drug users that drugs will not be tolerated in the Federal workplace. The use of illegal drugs, on or off duty, by Federal employees is inconsistent not only with the law-abiding behavior expected of all citizens, but also with the special trust placed in such employees as servants of the public.

If required to submit to urinalysis, the appointment to the position will be contingent upon a negative applicant drug test result.
