Federal Employer

Schedule A appointment refers to a special hiring authority that gives federal agencies an optional and potentially quicker way to hire individuals with disabilities. The federal government can hire an individual with disability under the Schedule A appointment. To obtain Schedule A, an individual with a disability needs a letter to serve as a certification that the individual has a disability that qualifies the individual for consideration under 5 CFR 213.3102 (u), Schedule A hiring authority, appointment for persons with disabilities. If an individual is a DOR job seeker, they can request for a letter to be written for them from their vocational rehabilitation counselor.
