Review and Implementation Process

Voluntary Self-Identification

Voluntarily self-identifying is a good thing - it's how things change. This video explains why companies doing business with the federal government ask job applicants and employees to voluntarily self-identify if they have a disability, and the important role that self-identifying plays in ensuring equal employment opportunity for people with disabilities.


Employment & Visitor Accommodations Office
