OFCCP Releases New Disability Self-Identification Form

Federal Contractors to Transition to New Form Immediately

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has renewed the Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability form, which  was set to expire on January  31, 2017. While no changes have been made to the form, its use has been extended for three years.

Effective immediately,  affirmative action employers must either  download the renewed form(s)  or update their electronic version(s) of the form to reflect the new expiration date.  

As a reminder, the disability self- identification  form must be offered to applicants and new hires, as well as used to resurvey the workforce  at least once every five years. The form is OMB-controlled and cannot be modified by employers . Completing the form is voluntary for applicants and employees. 

Employers using an online application system should work directly with their applicant tracking system vendor to ensure the new form is displayed for applicants.
