If an applicant or apprentice chooses not to self-identify as an individual with a disability, or leaves the form blank, can sponsors ask the individual for this information?

Equal Employment Opportunity

No. Sponsors can only use the form to ask whether or not an apprentice or apprenticeship applicant has a disability.  However, health changes over time, so sponsors will be required to remind apprentices that they can review and update their disability self-identification form annually.
