This may include an inquiry to obtain information regarding your character, employment history, general reputation, personal characteristics, police record, education, qualifications, motor vehicle record, mode of living and/or credit and indebtedness. The primary objective of any investigation will be to verify information you provided on your application or during the interview process in connection with your application for and/or continued employment (or contract) with the company. A consumer report and/or an investigative consumer report may be obtained at any time during the application process or during your employment with the company. Upon timely written request to our personnel department, and within 5 days of the request, the name, address and phone number of the reporting agency and the nature and scope of the report (if one is made) will be provided to you. You have the right to request details of the report from the consumer-reporting agency. Before any adverse action is taken, based in whole or in part on the information contained in the consumer report, you will be provided a copy of the report, the name, address and telephone number of the reporting agency, a summary of your rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, as well as additional information on your rights under the law.

The items of information requested below are required to process your background investigation. They are intended solely for that purpose and will not be used in a discriminatory manner for the making of business decisions.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.

Disabilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Blindness
  • Deafness
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Epilepsy
  • Autism
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Schizophrenia
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Bipolar disorder

  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Missing limbs or partially missing limbs
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder
  • Impairments requiring the use of a wheelchair
  • Intellectual disability (previously called mental retardation)

Please check one of the boxes below. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

Reasonable Accommodation Notice

Federal law requires employers to provide reasonable accommodation to qualified individuals with disabilities. Please tell us if you require a reasonable accommodation to apply for a job or to perform your job. Examples of reasonable accommodation include making a change to the application process or work procedures, providing documents in an alternate format, using a sign language interpreter, or using specialized equipment.
