Several new stories have been added to the In the News page of our website. Click here to view these stories along with other stories featuring ERA.
The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) has issued their approved Voluntary Self-Identification form for Disability. However, the form has not yet been posted on the OFCCP website, but should be soon. Click here for a copy of the form.
Effective Date - This form has been prepared to comply with the new Disability regulations that become effective March 24, 2014. Contractors are required to begin offering the disabled self-identification form based upon the contractors first plan date after March 24, 2014. For example, if you have a January 1st plan date you would not be required to offer the disabled identification form until January 1st, 2015. If your plan date is April 1st then you must offer the new self-identification form beginning April 1st 2014.
Additional Guidance - The OFCCP has offered some additional guidance regarding compliance. For example, the tag line that might be used in employment advertisements EEO f/m/d/v is not sufficient according to the Q&A on the OFCCP's website. Contractors will need to specify veterans (or at a minimum, vet) and disabled. Contractors are required to use this form verbatim for applicants and post offer. If you choose to create an electronically fillable version, the form must display the OMB number and expiration date, use the same font style such as Calibri or Arial and 11-pitch font size.
Employers Resource Association Information Sessions - Employers Resource Association previously offered several information sessions on the new Veterans and Disabled regulations. ERA will be offering additional sessions for those unable to attend before or who would like another review of the new regulations. Specific dates and times for these sessions will be provided in next week's ERA Update.
