Race & Ethnicity Definitions
If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed below,
please indicate by making the appropriate selection. As a government contractor
subject to Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA), we request this
information in order to measure the effectiveness of the outreach and positive
recruitment efforts we undertake pursuant to VEVRAA. Classification of protected
categories is as follows:
A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground,
naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of
military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the
Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active
duty because of a service-connected disability.
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.
An "Armed forces service medal veteran" means a veteran who, while serving on active
duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United
States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant
to Executive Order 12985.
Why are you being asked to complete this form?
OMB Control Number 1250-0005
Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide
equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us
measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or
if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you
will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be
kept private and will not be used against you in any way.
If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way.
Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our
employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily
self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment
because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
How do I know if I have a disability?
You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or
medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a
history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.
Disabilities include, but are not limited to:
- Cerebral palsy
- Muscular dystrophy
- Bipolar disorder
- Major depression
- Multiple sclerosis (MS)
- Missing limbs or partially missing limbs
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Obsessive compulsive disorder
- Impairments requiring the use of a wheelchair
- Intellectual disability (previously called mental retardation)
Reasonable Accommodation Notice
Federal law requires employers to provide reasonable accommodation to qualified
individuals with disabilities. Please tell us if you require a reasonable accommodation
to apply for a job or to perform your job. Examples of reasonable accommodation
include making a change to the application process or work procedures, providing
documents in an alternate format, using a sign language interpreter, or using
1Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended. For more
information about this form or the equal employment obligations of Federal contractors,
