OFCCP Video: Disability Inclusion Starts with You!

Posted by Alexandra Kielty - On October 22, 2015 (EST)

The Department of Labor's (DOL) Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), has released this video encouraging individuals with disabilities to voluntarily self-identify. The 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.

OFCCP, as part of its ongoing efforts to support greater self-identification by individuals with disabilities, created this video to explain why voluntary self-identification is a good thing. Contractors may wish to download and post this video on their Intranet or company Web sites to share with their employees and job applicants who may be reluctant to self-identify, or who may not understand why they are being asked to self-identify. Disability organizations and community groups may also wish to share the video with their members to encourage them to voluntarily self-identify when invited to do so by an employer that is a federal contractor.
