  • A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.
  • An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

Voluntary Self-Identification of
Disability
 
Why are you being asked to complete this form?
We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities.  We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities.  To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability.  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.  For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
