OFCCP releases Disability Self-Identification Form

Posted Thursday, January 30, 2014 6:59 pm

Beginning on March 24, federal contractors should use the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs' Section 503 Self-Identification Form to invite applicants and employees to self-identify as being an individual with a disability.  The form complies with recent changes to the Section 503 regulations that require contractors to track individuals with disabilities who apply for job with federal contractors, in addition to those individuals with disabilities that are employed by contractors.  According to the OFCCP's Section 503 FAQ, the pre-offer invitation to self-identify must be on a separate form from a contractor's job application.  Employees should also be given the opportunity to self-identify every five years, and contractors must remind employees that they may voluntarily update their disability status at least once before the five year period has expired.  Self-Identification Form
