Click here to log into Employee Self Service to voluntarily indicate your disability status. To access the form, start with the “Main Menu” drop-down list on the top-left corner of Employee Self Service, then navigate to Employee Self Service, Personal Information, and then Disability.
The Ohio State University is committed to growing and supporting its diverse community of people and ideas to foster the growth, development and success of our students, faculty and staff. Affirmative Action and Equal Employment Opportunity programs align with our institutional value of diversity, and are vital to the advancement of women, minorities, veterans and individuals with disabilities in our campus community.
It is important for Ohio State to measure its successes and challenges in employment equity. The University has reliable information on women, minorities and veterans who are currently employed by Ohio State; to more accurately represent its diverse community, Ohio State needs additional information about individuals employed by the University who currently identify as disabled or have had a disability.
Current employees who identify as disabled or have had a disability now have the option to voluntarily log into Employee Self Service to indicate their disability status. To access the form, start with the “Main Menu” drop-down list on the top-left corner of Employee Self Service, then navigate to Employee Self Service, Personal Information, and then Disability. Please note that completing this voluntary form will not designate that an individual needs additional accommodations for a disability. That process will continue to be completed through the University’s Americans with Disabilities Act Coordinator. You can learn more about that process here.
This important information will not be used against an individual in any way. It will be kept by the Office of Human Resources to meet federal requirements regarding the collection of such information and will remain confidential. Current employees may voluntarily self-identify as having or not having a disability without fear of any adverse action.
The federal government defines a disability as having a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity. Please visit the Voluntarily Self-Identification of Disability form in Employee Self Service for a nonexclusive list of disabilities.
Faculty and staff should contact their human resource professional (University employees) or supervisor (Wexner Medical Center employees) with any questions related to this request or the University’s Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity and Discrimination/Harassment policy. Individuals may also contact the Office of Human Resources Customer Service Center at 614-292-1050 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
