Update Your Military and Disability Statuses

Update Your Military and Disability Statuses in ESS

You now have the opportunity to voluntarily self-identify your military and disability statuses in the Employee Self Service (ESS) portal.

New 2014 federal regulations have changed one of the military status designations. Review your current military status in ESS to make any necessary changes.

Also included in the 2014 federal regulations is the invitation to all employees to self-identify disability status at least once every five years. You may also identify as an individual with a disability at any time.

Your self-reported information helps BIW evaluate the effectiveness of our equal employment and affirmative action efforts. Adding this information to your ESS profile is strictly voluntary, and individual disability status is kept confidential.

If you have any questions, contact Sarah Nicholson, EEO/Affirmative Action Officer.
