Invitation to Identify Blurb

Anonymous - Jun 19, 2015
Back to Ask the Experts

Could someone tell me if the following intro paragraph on our Invitation to Identify form would be compliant with OFCCP requirements.

We are an employer subject to certain government recordkeeping and reporting requirements in accordance with civil rights law and regulations. We are also subject to the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended by the Jobs for Veterans Act of 2002, which requires government contractors to take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment protected veterans. To comply with these laws, we invite applicants to voluntarily self-identify their gender, race/ethnicity, and veteran status. Submission of this information is voluntary and refusal to provide it will not subject you to any adverse treatment. The information provided will be used in ways that are not inconsistent with the above-mentioned laws and regulations. The information you submit will be kept confidential and may only be used in accordance with applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations. When reported, the data will not identify any specific individual.
