VOLUNTARY DISCLOSURE FOR SPECIALIZED SERVICES FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES
The Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits employer-related inquiries as to whether or not an individual has a disability or to the nature and extent of such a disability before an official job offer has been made. However, other federal laws provide various benefits and services for people with disabilities, both veteran and non-veteran. Therefore, a service provider may ask you to disclose your disability; however, you have the right to choose whether or not to disclose this information. Should you wish to explore additional disability-related benefits and services, you must inform your Workforce Solutions representative. This is a voluntary disclosure and the disability information is not required for provision of general services. This information, and any disability-related information requested on WorkInTexas.com, will not be shared with employers without your consent.
