APPLICANT’S STATEMENT: I understand that the Company is committed to providing equal opportunity in all employment practices, including but not limited to selection, hiring promotion, transfer, and compensation to all qualified applicants and employees without regard to age, race, color, national origin, sex, religion, handicap or disability, citizenship status, service member status, or any other category protected by federal, state, or local law.
I authorize former and present employers, and professional, work, and personal references listed in the application and any other individuals I may name, to give the Company or its designee any and all information concerning my previous employment and any pertinent information they may have, personal or otherwise, and release such parties from all liability for any damages that may result from furnishing same to the Company. I also authorize the Company to provide truthful information concerning my employment with it to future employers, and I agree to hold it harmless for providing such information.
I understand that the Company reserves the right, to the extent permitted by law, to require drug and alcohol screening tests of an applicant or an employee either prior to employment or any time during employment and I hereby give my consent to any such tests. I consent to the release of the results of any such tests to the Company or its designee. I release the Company and its designee from any and all liability and damages that may result or arise from any drug test or the provision of information in connection with such a test.
I understand that this employment application and any other Company documents are not promises of employment. Should I be employed, I understand that my employment will be on a trial period for six months from the date of my hiring and that I will remain an at-will employee thereafter. I further understand that, if I am employed, I can terminate my employment at any time with or without cause and with or without advance notice and that the Company has a similar right. I understand that no manager, representative, or agent of the Company has any authority to enter into any agreement for employment for any specified period of time or to make any agreement contrary to the foregoing, except that the General Manager may do so in writing.
In return for the Company’s agreement to arbitrate legal disputes and for considering this application, I agree by signing below that any dispute of a legal nature arising under federal, state, or local law between me and the Company (including any such claim regarding discrimination, harassment, or any other legal dispute relating to my employment arising under any labor, employment, or civil rights law) will be subject to final and binding arbitration in accordance with the Company’s arbitration procedures. I understand that the arbitrator, who will serve as judge and jury, has the same authority to award money damages and other relief, as does a court or jury. If employed, and if required, I agree to sign a stand-alone arbitration agreement that would supplement this one. The Company’s arbitration procedures are available for my review on request.
I certify that the information given by me on this application and during the interview process is true and complete in all respects, and I agree that if the information is found to be false, misleading, or unsatisfactory in any respect (in the Company’s judgment) that I will be disqualified from consideration for employment or subject to immediate dismissal if discovered after I am hired.
