Reminders: Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability Form &  Declaration of Payroll

By: Angel Berberena, Esq.

July 28, 2020

Federal contractors and subcontractors have until August 4, 2020, to incorporate the updated Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability Form (CC-305) into their applicant and human resources systems and processes.
The updated form is expected to increase the response rate of applicants and employees who voluntarily self-identify their disability status. Doing so will aid contractors in developing programs to increase the utilization of people with disabilities in their workforce. The only portion that contractors may modify or delete is the "For Employer Use Only" section, which was added to give contractors flexibility to enhance their recordkeeping for data analysis required by OFCCP's regulations.
Employers in Puerto Rico also have until August 4, 2020, to file the Declaration of Payroll with the Corporation of the State Insurance Fund ("CSIF"). If you experience difficulties filing online, you may contact the CSIF here and make sure to include your name, email address, phone number, policy number and name of the company.
