The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) recently issued a joint memo highlighting revisions to the SF-256 (Self-Identification of Disability) form used by federal agencies. The memo also includes resources to assist agencies in their efforts to encourage self-identification, among them EARN and the Federal Exchange on Employment and Disability (FEED). The revisions to SF-256 make it easier for applicants and employees with disabilities to self-identify by simplifying terminology, better defining medical conditions listed and allowing for indication of a disability without specifying a diagnosis.
