Qualified applicants are considered for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, citizenship status, veteran status, age, or disability if otherwise qualified with or without reasonable accommodation. This application will be given every consideration, but its acceptance by us does not imply that you will be employed. In processing this application, we may request that an investigative consumer report be prepared, which may include information as to your character, general reputation, credit history, law enforcement record, and personal characteristics. If a decision is made to deny employment based in whole or in part on information contained in such a consumer report, you will be so advised by us under provisions of the Fair Credit Reporting Act. You will also be provided the name, address and telephone number of the agency providing the investigative consumer report. APPLICATION ACKNOWLEDGEMENT I certify that all of the information given by me on this employment application or in supplemental form is true and correct to the best of my knowledge and belief. I further understand that any false, incomplete or misleading information or consequential omissions of any kind on this application or supplemental forms are sufficient cause for rejection of my application or my dismissal if I am hired. I hereby authorize the Company and its agents to investigate all statements contained in this application and to interview the references and previous employers listed in this application. I authorize all such references and previous employers to provide the Company all facts, opinions and evaluations concerning my previous employment and education, along with any other information they may have, personal or otherwise, and I release all such parties from all liability whatsoever which may allegedly arise from furnishing such information to the Company, including, but not limited to, any liability for defamation or invasion of privacy. If I am offered employment, I understand that such an offer may be conditioned upon satisfactory results of a background investigation and/or medical examination or inquiry, including a drug screen test. I understand that my initial and continued employment is conditioned upon my being able to satisfactorily perform the essential functions of the job in which I am placed, with or without reasonable accommodation, according to the standards set by the Company. I further agree that my initial and continued employment is contingent upon my undergoing drug and/or alcohol tests whenever requested by the Company and that the results of such tests must be satisfactory to the Company. I understand that my refusal to take such an examination at any time will subject me to termination. I understand that employment with the Company is at-will, for no definite period of time, and that employment and compensation may be terminated, with or without cause or notice, at any time, at the option of the Company or myself. I understand that only the Company President has the authority to alter the "at-will" employment relationship to establish a contract of employment with me for any definite period of time, and that any such contract must be in writing, clearly labeled and designated as an "Employment Contract", and signed by both parties. I agree and fully understand that participation in any benefit programs offered by the Company does not create a contract of employment, nor does any employee handbook or other statements of the Company policy, and such should not be construed as a contract. I understand that if offered employment, I will, as a condition of employment, be required to submit proof of my identity and legal right to work in the United States on my first day of employment. Any offer of employment is contingent upon you entering into the Company's Mandatory Dispute Resolution Policy and Confidentiality Policy at the time of orientation.
