Application - Compliance Questions

Organizations in the United States are required to report to the federal government Equal Opportunity information such as gender and ethnicity. To help collect this information, many organizations allow the job applicant to enter the information when applying for a job. These questions can be configured by the administrator to be required for job applicants.

Any instructions that are associated with the questions display immediately before the question.

For portals with multiple languages enabled, compliance questions and responses display in the Compliance Questions tab of the application in the applicant's browser language. If the applicant's language is not defined for the questions and responses, then they display in the question's default language.

Note: The questions that display in the Compliance Questions section on the application are dependent upon the settings in Compliance Enablement Preferences for the requisition's Location OU.

The following are the possible questions included in the Compliance Questions action item and their predefined options:

  • Disability
    • I have a disability and would like to be considered under the affirmative action program.
    • I do not have a disability or would not like to be considered under the affirmative action program.
    • Decline to Specify.

    • Hispanic or Latino
    • Other
    • Decline to specify
  • Gender:
    • Female

  • Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability - This question allows applicants to voluntarily self-identify that they have a disability. The full text for the question will display as per section 503 of OFCCP. When this question is added to the Compliance Questions section in the application workflow, the question always displays as the first compliance question for applicants.
  • If there are multiple compliance questions in the Compliance Questions section, then a Next button appears directly at the bottom of the "Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability" question. Applicants click Next to move to the next question. If there are no additional compliance questions, then applicants can click the Next button that displays at the bottom of the application to the right of the Cancel button.

  • Custom Questions - If custom questions are configured and enabled for the job requisition, then the questions display in the Compliance Questions step.

Each question may or may not be required, depending on the settings for the question as defined by the administrator in Compliance Enablement Preferences.

Note: The Veteran Status options relate to disabled veterans, veterans of the Vietnam Era, recently separated veterans, other protected veterans, and armed forces service medal veterans.
