The Office of Federal Contractor Compliance Programs (OFCCP) released the much anticipated updated Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability Form (CC-305).  The new form is much shorter than the previous form and now fits on a single page. 
Covered federal contractors and subcontractors are required to invite all applicants (pre-offer) and new hires (post-offer) to self-identify as an individual with a disability using this form.  Once every five years, a contractor must re-extend the invitation to self-identify disability status to current employees.  While covered federal contractors have some discretion with the format and content of invitations to self-identify race, ethnicity, gender and veteran status, there is little to no discretion with the format and content of the invitation to self-identify disabilities. 
Covered federal contractors have until August 4, 2020 to implement the new form into their applicant and employee self-identification process.  Covered federal contractors must continue use of the form approved by OMB in 2017 until they have incorporated the revised form.
