In time to mark the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act in July 2020, OSHR launched the Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability form within the Employee Self Service portal of the state’s Integrated HR/Payroll System.

Created as a way to help measure how well we are doing in recruiting and retaining state employees, this confidential form is part of OSHR’s response to Governor Cooper establishing North Carolina as an Employment First State and the commitment to ensure equal opportunity to succeed in the state government workplace. You can easily access the form while updating your weekly time sheet, then click one box to confirm you have a disability, do not have a disability, or don’t wish to answer. Your response will help the state better understand where we can expand our efforts to build engagement and inclusion across state government as well as expand the state’s positive approach to hiring of individuals with disabilities.

To update your information, log in to the Integrated HR/Payroll System. Select My Data at the top left of the main screen, then choose My Personal Data. The Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability link is the first item under My Personal Information.

Thank you for supporting this initiative and helping North Carolina better serve individuals with disabilities.
