Individuals with disabilities and qualified protected veterans

If you have a disability or are a qualified protected veteran covered by the act and would like to be considered under the affirmative action program, please tell us. You may inform us of your desire to benefit under the program at this time and/or at any time in the future. This information will assist us in placing you in an appropriate position and in making accommodations for your disability.

Submission of this information is voluntary, and refusal to provide it will not subject you to any adverse treatment. Information you submit about your disability will be kept confidential, except that (a) supervisors and managers may be informed regarding restrictions on the work or duties of individuals with disabilities and disabled veterans regarding necessary accommodations, (b) first aid and safety personnel may be informed, to the extent appropriate, if and when the condition might require emergency treatment, and government officials engaged in enforcing laws such as those administered by OFCCP or the Americans with Disabilities Act, may be informed. The information provided will be used only in ways that are consistent with Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended (38 USC 4212).

If you are an individual with a disability or if you are qualified protected veteran covered by the act, we would like to include you under the affirmative action program.

It would assist us if you tell us about (a) any special methods, skills, and procedures which qualify you for positions that you might not otherwise be able to do because of your disability so that you will be considered for any positions of that kind, and (b) the accommodations we could make that would enable you to perform the job properly and safely, including special equipment, changes in the physical layout of the job, elimination of certain duties relating to the job, provision of personal assistance services or other accommodations. If you would like to self identify under the provisions listed in this document, please contact HRS at 573-882-7976.
