I've been applying for jobs recently, and I've come across a form I've never seen before: OMB Form CC-305, "Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability." I think this form is required for applications to companies that work with the US Federal Government.
I feel like this should be an easy question but I'm not sure what the right answer is? I'm a long-term survivor (over 20 years) and I don't require any accommodation at work. I do not consider myself disabled.
However, if I read the question at face value: "You are considered to have a disability if you have a history or record of a medical condition including cancer," the answer would be "Yes."
How should I answer this question?
