In response to stakeholder feedback, OFCCP has streamlined and revised the Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability Form (CC-305). We believe that the updated form will increase the response rate of applicants and employees who choose to voluntarily self-identify their disability status. Doing so will aid contractors in developing programs to increase the utilization of people with disabilities. Under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, federal contractors and subcontractors with a contract of at least $50,000 and 50 employees aspire to meet an annual 7% utilization goal for individuals with disabilities.

Federal contractors and subcontractors have until August 4, 2020, to implement the new form into their applicant and employee systems and processes.

OFCCP is committed to providing proactive, meaningful compliance assistance to help contractors solicit disability status information from applicants and employees and meet their equal employment opportunity obligations. For more guidance on implementing the form, please read OFCCP’s Frequently Asked Questions on the topic.
