The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) has streamlined and revised the Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability Form (CC-305). The updated form alphabetizes, updates, and expands the list of disabilities. It also contains new language regarding the goal of having individuals with disabilities comprise seven percent of the workforce, the requirement to ask employees to update their disability status at least every five years, promises that all information will be kept confidential and refers those who would like more information to the OFCCP’s website.
Federal contractors and subcontractors have until August 4, 2020 to implement the new form into their applicant and employee systems and processes. Covered contractors may continue using the disability self-identification form that expired in January 2020, until they implement the revised self-identification form.
Covered contractors and subcontractors should begin working on incorporating the revised form into their electronic systems, including applicant tracking systems, prior to the August 4 effective date.
