Acknowledgements, Authorization and Release

All of the information I have provided on this application and in connection with the application is correct and true. I understand that any false, misleading or incomplete answer or statements or implications made by me in connection with this application or other required documents, or the failure to disclose any relevant information, shall result in the denial of employment or termination. I further understand that nothing contained in this application or in the granting of an interview is intended to create a contract of employment, a contract for the providing of any benefit or to obligate Dauphin County Library System in any way. If an employment relationship is established, I understand that I will have the right to terminate my employment with or without cause, for any reason at any time, and that Dauphin County Library System retains a similar right. No promises, statements or representation to the contrary have been made to me, and I understand that no such promises, statements or representations are binding on Dauphin County Library System.

I hereby grant Dauphin County Library System permission to investigate my personal, educational and employment history and to contact persons, organizations, institutions or government agencies who may have knowledge of me. In consideration of my receipt of this application and being considered for employment, and intending to be legally bound, I hereby release Dauphin County Library System, its directors, officers, principals, employees and agents from any and all liability, real or potential, for seeking such information and all other persons, corporations or organizations for furnishing such information to Dauphin County Library System.

I understand that if I receive an offer of employment, I may be required, along with other incoming employees in the same job category, to undergo a medical examination by a doctor selected by Dauphin County Library System before my employment begins, to which I hereby assent. As part of this examination, I agree to complete a health evaluation form. I understand that if the examination discloses that I have a disability, my offer of employment will not be withdrawn because of that disability, provided that, with reasonable accommodation, I will be able to perform all of the essential functions of the job for which I have received a conditional offer of employment. I understand that any information obtained regarding my medical condition or history will be collected and maintained on separate forms and in separate medical files and will be treated as a confidential medical record in accordance with applicable law.

Finally, I understand that if I am offered employment, Pennsylvania child abuse and criminal background checks and Federal FBI fingerprinting will be conducted and I will be required within three (3) business days of commencing employment to complete the applicable section of the I-9 form and provide Dauphin County Library System with specific documents to establish my identity and employment eligibility. If a position requires driving a library vehicle a DMV/Department of Motor Vehicles Records Check will be completed.
