Employment For People With Disabilities and Schedule A Hiring

The Department of Justice (DOJ) has a dynamic and diverse workforce and is firmly committed to ensuring equal opportunities for people with disabilities. The Schedule A Hiring Authority for people with disabilities (Schedule A) is a path to employment with the federal government, DOJ, and the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW).

What Is Schedule A?

Schedule A is an exception to the traditional hiring process. It streamlines the hiring process and, in some instances, hiring managers may select solely from a list of qualified Schedule A applicants.

You can apply using Schedule A if you have an intellectual disability, a severe physical disability, or a psychiatric disability. If you’re selected, you’ll need to show that you meet the job qualifications, either with or without a reasonable accommodation.

OVW is dedicated to fulfilling DOJ’s mission to attract, develop, retain, and accommodate talented employees with disabilities.

How to Apply

If you are interested in applying for a position with OVW and meet the eligibility requirements for applicants covered under Schedule A, you may apply to an advertised position, and submit your resume and Schedule A letter to For DOJ attorney opportunities and internships, please visit the legal careers webpage to view current vacancies.

If you do not have access to email, contact the Selective Placement Program Coordinator (SPPC) or Disability Point of Contact (DPOC), as appropriate, to find out the best way to submit your documents.

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 Office on Violence Against Women’s Disability Point of Contact at

Reasonable Accommodation Statement
