Notification regarding self-identification of disability

Anonymous - Oct 04, 2017
Back to Ask the Experts

Is there a specific format or method that a contractor must use when sending a reminder to employees about their right to self-identify between the five year period? During October, our organization celebrates National Disability Employment Awareness Month through various sponsored activities. We also publish a notice in our employee newsletter as well as on our Intranet reminding employees about their right to confidentially self-identify their disability status at any point during their employment and provide a contact number. The newsletter goes out to all employees. Is this sufficient for meeting our obligations or do we need to do something in addition to this?
