CITY OF THE COLONY
PRE-EMPLOYMENT/EMPLOYMENT INQUIRY RELEASE
In connection with my application for employment with the City of The Colony, I understand that inquiries will be made concerning my employment, criminal, and driving records. I hereby authorize all former employers and all other public and private concerns, including (but not limited to) consumer reporting agencies and similar entities, to release any and all information maintained by any such employer, agency, or entity concerning my personal history.
I voluntarily agree to submit to drug screening as a condition of employment
within 48 hours from the receipt of the job offer. I understand I have the
right to refuse to submit to such screening, however, I also understand that
such refusal will be treated as a positive result, and I will be denied
employment with the City of The Colony.
I understand if I receive a conditional offer of employment, the offer is contingent on my successfully completing and/or passing the aforementioned checks and screening. I understand if employment with the City of The Colony is denied because of information contained in a consumer report obtained from a reporting agency, I will be entitled to receive from the City of The Colony only the name and address from the reporting agency from which the report was obtained.
I hereby understand and acknowledge that unless otherwise defined by applicable
law, any employment relationship with the City of The Colony is of an “at will”
nature, which means that the Employee may resign at any time and the Employer
may discharge Employees at any time with or without cause.
This authorization shall remain in effect over the course of my employment. Reports may be ordered periodically during the course of my employment.
In consideration of the City of The Colony’s acceptance and consideration of my
application for employment, I hereby, and on behalf of my heirs, agents,
executors, administrators, and assignees, release and forever discharge the City
of The Colony and all affiliated entities from all claims, demands, damages,
actions and causes of action pertaining to or arising out of the inquiries made
into my personal history, and release and forever discharge all former employers
from all liability arising out of disclosure to the City of information
pertaining to my personal history, as long as the disclosure and use of any such
materials is not done maliciously.
I authorize investigation of all statements contained in this application for employment as may be necessary in arriving at an employment decision.
This application for employment shall be considered active for a period of time
not to exceed 90 days. Any applicant wishing to be considered for employment beyond this time period should inquire as to whether or not applications are being accepted at that time.
In the event of employment, I understand that false or misleading information given in my application or interview(s) may result in discharge. I also understand I am required to abide by all rules and regulations of the employer.
