Disability Hiring

Justice's greatest asset is its dynamic and diverse workforce. The Department strives to eliminate barriers and to make available new opportunities for people with disabilities to contribute to and thrive at Justice. To that end, Justice welcomes and encourages qualified individuals with disabilities, including individuals with targeted disabilities, to apply for employment.

Commitment to Hiring Persons with Disabilities

The Department of Justice is firmly committed to satisfying its affirmative obligations under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, to ensure that persons with disabilities have equal opportunity to be hired and advanced on the basis of merit.

If you are applying for a position within Justice and meet the eligibility requirements for persons with targeted disabilities under 5 C.F.R. 213.3102(u), commonly referred to as Schedule A, you may apply to an advertised position through the normal channels, or you may also contact the Disability Point of Contact (DPOC) for the component or office in which you have an interest for additional assistance.

Reasonable Accommodations

The Department of Justice provides reasonable accommodations, upon request, for persons with disabilities when necessary during the application, interview and hiring process (such as the need for forms in alternate formats or the use of a sign language interpreter during the interview). In addition, the Department provides reasonable accommodations to its employees who require additional assistance in carrying out their duties as a result of a disability.  If you require a reasonable accommodation during the application or interview process please contact the Disability Point of Contact for the component to which you are applying.
