Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities.

Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
