The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs has revised the Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability Form (CC-305) with updated preferred language and examples of disabilities. Federal contractors use this self-identification information to support required affirmative action programs.

The revisions include additional disabilities; more descriptive and inclusive examples of disabilities; and simplified and broadened response options to self-identification questions. Federal contractors and subcontractors have until July 25 to implement the new form into their applicant and employee systems and processes.

For more guidance on implementing the form, please read OFCCP’s Frequently Asked Questions.

For more information on Section 503 requirements, visit the OFCCP Section 503 information page, or contact the OFCCP Help Desk at (800) 397-6251 or online.
