In response to contractor requests, OFCCP submitted, and OMB approved, a fillable Spanish pdf version and Microsoft Word version of the Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability form that will be required by the agency’s new regulations implementing Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act.
An employer’s required use of the new self-ID form will depend on the date of the contractor’s affirmative action plan. The requirement to invite applicants to provide their disability status is containted in Subpart C of the regulations. Contractors must comply with the obligations of Subpart C when they next regularly update their AAP following March 24, 2014 – the effective date of the new regulations.
The forms are not yet posted on OFCCP’s website but can found on the OMB’s website.
