Disable and Veteran Self-Id Questionaire

Disable and Veteran Self-Id Questionnaire Definitions

Midwest Well Services, Inc. is a federal contractor subject to Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Act of 1974 (VEVRAA), as amended.  Section 503 prohibits job discrimination because of disability by employers holding federal contracts or subcontracts and requires such employers to take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment qualified individuals with disabilities who, with or without reasonable accommodation, can perform the essential functions of a job.  VEVRAA requires government contractors to take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment qualified special disabled veterans and qualified disabled veterans, veterans of the Vietnam era, other protected veterans, one-year recently separated veterans, three-year recently separated veterans, and Armed Forces service medal veterans. This invitation to self-identify refers to such veterans as “covered veterans”.

If you have a disability or are a covered veteran and would like to participate in our affirmative action program, please complete the form below or contact your local HR/EEO Representative.  Our affirmative action program contains policies and procedures that assure compliance with our Section 503 and VEVRAA obligations.  You may inform us of your desire to benefit under the affirmative action program now or at any time in the future. Whether you choose to so identify is voluntary on your part.

This employer also is subject to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).  Consistent with the ADA, this employer’s policy is to provide reasonable accommodations to any individual with a disability who needs such an accommodation to complete the job application process or to perform the job in question.  If you need such an accommodation, you may request it at any time by contacting your local HR/EEO Representative or your supervisor.  Making a request for an accommodation will not subject you to any adverse treatment.

Disclosure of your status as an individual with a disability or covered veteran is voluntary.  Choosing not to provide this information will not subject you to any adverse treatment.  Information you submit concerning your disability will be kept confidential, except that (i) supervisors and managers may be informed regarding restrictions on the work duties of individuals with disabilities or special disabled veterans, and regarding necessary accommodations, (ii) first aid and safety personnel may be informed, when and to the extent appropriate, if the condition might require emergency treatment, and (iii) Government officials engaged in enforcing the Rehabilitation Act, VEVRAA, or the Americans with Disabilities Act, may be informed.  The information provided will be used only in ways that are consistent with Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, VEVRAA, and the ADA.
