I certify and affirm that all of the information provided in connection with the application process, including the information provided on this application for employment (“Application”) and any résumé submitted, is true, accurate, and complete, and that I have not withheld any information that would, if disclosed, affect this application unfavorably. I understand that any omission, misrepresentation, or falsification in connection with this application process may be grounds for denial of employment or, if I am hired, immediate termination of my employment, regardless of how or when discovered. I understand that failure to complete this application for employment may result in my disqualification from eligibility for employment.
I authorize The Hockaday School (the “School”) to investigate all information related to my Application in order to determine my qualifications for employment, and I understand that such investigation may include contacting any person or entity listed on this Application and/or any of my former and/or current employers and other relevant individuals and entities. I authorize all persons and entities having information relevant to my application to provide any and all information to the School, on their own initiative and/or at the request of the School. I expressly release and agree to hold harmless the School, its employees, agents, attorneys, and all the persons and entities with whom the School may discuss, review or share such reference information, from any actual and potential claims or liabilities arising out of or as a result of the request for, provision of, or use of any and all information regarding me. I understand that any offer of employment may be rescinded, or my employment terminated, if any information regarding me is inadequate or unacceptable to the School or if I violate any of the provisions of this Certification.
I understand that completion of this Application does not assure me of a position with the School. I also understand that neither this application nor any other document constitutes a contract of employment for a specific term and that any employment relationship that may be established will be “at-will.” As such, any employment relationship I may have with the School may be terminated at any time, with or without notice, for any reason or no reason, by me or the School. I understand that no representative of the School, other than the Head of School, has the authority to enter into any agreement for employment with me contrary to the foregoing. I further understand that if I am hired by the School, I must abide by all rules and policies of the School which, other than the “at-will” employment policy, may be changed without notice at the sole discretion of the School.
I also understand that any offer of employment, and continued employment, are conditioned upon the satisfactory completion of a background check, including but not limited to criminal history background checks, sex offender database checks, fingerprinting, motor vehicle records checks, educational background checks, reference checks, drug testing, and credit checks, as determined in the sole discretion of the School.
I understand that information, data, and records provided or disclosed by or on behalf of the School or that I otherwise learn in the course of dealing with the School shall be deemed confidential and/or proprietary information. I understand that no right or license, either expressed or implied, is granted to use or disseminate any confidential and/or proprietary information.
I HAVE CAREFULLY READ THE ABOVE CERTIFICATION, AND I UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO ITS TERMS.
