In reviewing the voluntary self-identification of protected veteran status you provided above, this appears to be consistent with the sample invitation to self-identify provided in the VEVRAA Final Rule. The language above did not include the selections, which I assume appear in the electronic format. In any case, make sure the selections include the following: [ ] I identify as one or more of the classifications of protected veteran listed above [ ] I am not a protected veteran [ ] I don't wish to answer As far as the voluntary self-identification of disability, contractors are required to use the exact language that is provided in the OMB form. If creating an electronically fillable copy of the form, you should make sure that you do not alter the form or make changes that diminish the general accessibility of the form. The language you provided above appears to be consistent with the language in the OMB form. Make sure the selections do not deviate from the following: [ ] Yes, I have a disability (or previously had a disability) [ ] No, I don't have a disability [ ] I don't wish to answer For additional information, refer to the OFCCP FAQs on VEVRAA and Section 503, which address questions on voluntary self-identification. As far as the general EEO self-identification survey, you should include a statement about the voluntary nature of this inquiry in your language. EEOC also provided links to sample self-identification language on their website.
