Employment History


By submitting, I certify that the information provided in this employment application and accompanying resumé (if any) is true and complete and I understand that any misrepresentation or omission may be grounds for disqualification for employment consideration or continued employment. I authorize the investigation of all statements contained in this application (and accompanying resumé, if any.) I also authorize the City to contact my present employer (unless otherwise noted on this form), past employers and references. I understand that the City may request an investigative consumer report from a consumer reporting agency that includes information as to my character, general reputation, personal characteristics, and I have specifically authorized such an investigation in conjunction with this application for employment. I authorize any person, school, current employer, past employer, and organization named in this job application (and accompanying resumé, if any) to provide the City with relevant information and opinion that may be useful to the City in making a hiring decision, and I release such persons and organizations from any legal liability in making such statements. I hereby consent to a complete physical examination, including x-rays after an offer of employment has been made. I hereby agree to a drug screening examination prior to or after an offer of employment. I understand that said offer is contingent upon the satisfactory results of any physical examination or drug screening. Further, I consent to the release to the City of any and all medical information as may be deemed necessary by the City. I understand and agree that, if hired, my employment is for no definite period of time, and may regardless of the date of payment or stated terms of my wages or salary, be terminated at any time unless restricted by ordinance or otherwise. I understand and agree that my employment relationship with the City, if hired, is an employment-at-will relationship and may be terminated by either me or the City at any time with or without cause, unless restricted by ordinance or otherwise. I understand that no person is authorized to change the terms mentioned in this employment application and I understand that this employment application is not, and is not intended to be, a contract of employment.


I understand that the City or an agent of its choice may conduct a thorough background investigation before rendering a final decision regarding my eligibility for employment. This investigation may include inquires as to my abilities, character, reputation, and physical fitness, to fulfill the essential functions of the position for which I am applying. To facilitate this investigation, I do hereby give my consent and authority for any educational institution, hospital, medical doctor, police agency or credit reporting agency to furnish information from their records to the City, or an agent of its choice. With regard to any credit reporting agency which might be contacted by the City, or any agent of its choice: I understand that I may inquire as to the identification of those credit reporting agencies contacted and the City will advise me as to their identity and the nature and scope of the information they furnished, upon receipt of my written request for such.
