Q. We have all new employees fill out a data sheet. Is it OK to ask them to reveal their race on this form?

A. You can ask employees to “self-identify” their race on a voluntary basis. The data sheet should make clear that the employee is being invited to self-identify and that failure to complete the form will not be held against them.
