Self-ID Disability Form Inquiry

Gina C. - Apr 28, 2017
Back to Ask the Experts

I’m inquiring about whether or not, we are able to alter the format of the OFCCP Self-ID Disability Form for our mobile capabilities for Indeed sponsored jobs. Unfortunately, the pdf version that OFCCP is requiring is not compatible with Indeed’s quality check for “sponsored jobs”. That being said, they have basically given us a couple options…1) to alter the form, which I know OFCCP isn’t a fan of or 2) that we just don’t purchase sponsored jobs, however, that is where we get the largest amount of hires from, particularly coming with those sponsored Indeed jobs.

Here is the information we had been given by our third party rep on Indeed’s rationale. We were also given an example from another Federal Contractor that had altered the form to meet the quality check. My question for you is whether we would be a risk for being out of compliance or would be dinged during an OFCCP audit, if we go ahead and let the form be altered to meet Indeed’s quality check.

Info that was provided to us:

The way the OFCCP is formatted will not affect organic visibility, but it will affect mobile sponsored visibility (the ability for sponsored jobs to appear on mobile search results). Our Mobile Search Quality team reviews every application submitted for mobile sponsored visibility and disqualifies applications that have non-mobile friendly components. According to their guidelines, the PDF on the US Cellular application would disqualify them. This is because it is not easy to read without pinching and zooming.

Thank You!
