Proof of eligibility for Work
I understand that if I am hired, I must be able to prove my identity and my eligibility to work in the United States using forms of documentation deemed acceptable by the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services. I acknowledge that failure to do so may constitute grounds for termination or an offer of employment rescinded.
If state law requires me to furnish a work permit because I am under the age of 18, I will do so no later than my first day of employment. I authorize the investigation of all statements I make in this application; the release of references, grade transcripts, drug testing results, criminal background inquiry reports, search of social media sites including, but not limited to Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter feeds, YouTube blogs and posts and additional information pertinent to my employment; the solicitation of any and all information from previous employers, colleagues and other persons concerning previous employment and any pertinent information they may have. I certify that the facts set forth in this application for employment are true and complete to the best of my knowledge. I have not withheld anything that would, if disclosed, affect this application unfavorably. I understand that if I am employed, any false statements may result in dismissal. I authorize the Village to conduct a background investigation of any of the facts set forth in this application including an assessment of any criminal record. A credit check is authorized when deemed critical to the position applying for.
