Weis Builders is an Equal Opportunity Employer, including disabled and veteran. When applying for our open positions you may be asked to volunteer information, including:
Voluntary Affirmative Action Questionnaire: At times, our company may be required by state and federal laws to furnish statistical data and to maintain records of certain population characteristics of those applying for jobs. The information you supply will be aggregated and used for statistical purposes only. If you are offered employment with us, it will not be used as employment criteria. Weis Builders is an equal employment opportunity employer supporting diversity in the workplace.
Voluntary Veteran Self-Identification: Weis Builders may be a government contractor subject to the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended by the Jobs for Veterans Act of 2002, U.S.C. 4212 (VEVRAA), which requires Government contractors to take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment: (1) disabled veterans; (2) recently separated veterans; (3) active-duty wartime or campaign badge veterans; and (4) Armed Forces service medal veterans. These classifications are defined as follows: A “disabled veteran” is one of the following: 1) a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or 2) a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service connected disability.
- A “recently separated veteran” means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran’s discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.
- An “active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran” means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.
- An “Armed forces service medal veteran” means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.
Protected veterans may have additional rights under USERRA—the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act. In particular, if you were absent from employment in order to perform service in the uniformed service, you may be entitled to be reemployed by your employer in the position you would have obtained with reasonable certainty if not for the absence due to service. For more information, call the U.S. Department of Labor’s Veterans Employment and Training Service (VETS), toll-free, at 1-866-4-USA-DOL. If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed above, please indicate by checking the appropriate box when applying. As a Government contractor subject to VEVRAA, we request this information in order to measure the effectiveness of the outreach and positive recruitment efforts we undertake pursuant to VEVRAA.
Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability: Download form. Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to, if you fall within this category.
If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will remain confidential and will not be used against you in any way. If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
How do I know if I have a disability? You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition. Disabilities include, but are not limited to: blindness, deafness, cancer, diabetes, autism, cerebral palsy, HIV/AIDS, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depression, multiple sclerosis (MS), missing limbs or partially missing limbs, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive compulsive disorder, impairments requiring the use of a wheelchair, intellectual disabilities (ie. down-syndrom or autism), epilepsy, and muscular dystrophy.
Reasonable Accommodation Notice: At Weis Builders, we are committed to providing reasonable accommodation to qualified individuals with disabilities. Please tell us if you require a reasonable accommodation.
Reasonable accommodation can include making a change to the application process or work procedures, providing documents in an alternate format, using a sign language interpreter, or specialized equipment.
