Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability
Why are you being asked to complete this form?
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:
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
