I certify that all of the information I have provided herein to Vanguard Eldercare Medical Group, and/or its affiliated entities (collectively, “VGEMG”), is true, complete, and correct. If VGEMG discovers, at any time, that I failed to completely and honestly provide any requested information in this Employment Application or during the interview process, I understand that my Application will no longer be considered, or if I am working for VGEMG, I will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination.
I understand that if VGEMG chooses to make me an offer of employment, this offer will be contingent upon the successful completion of a credentialing and criminal history background investigation about me from a consumer reporting agency, and, depending on the position offered, psychometric testing. Under the Federal Fair Credit Reporting Act of 1970, as amended, VGEMG will request in writing my authorization for the disclosure of my driving record, criminal/civil history, and investigative consumer report. Disclosure of a criminal record or pending charges will not constitute an automatic bar to employment. Factors such as date of the offense, seriousness and nature of the violation, rehabilitation, and position applied for will be taken into account.
All Applicants: Any requested driver’s license information may be used to verify your personal information and driving history. By signing this application, you authorize VGEMG to obtain personal information contained in your driving records if permitted under state law.
Indiana Applicants: VGEMG will not review any criminal records that have been sealed or restricted.
Michigan Applicants: VGEMG will not review any misdemeanor arrests that have not resulted in a criminal conviction. We reserve the right to request from you copies of criminal conviction records.
I expressly authorize VGEMG to contact anyone that it deems appropriate to verify the statements and information I have provided in this Employment Application in order to further investigate my background, past performance, and suitability for employment. This includes, but is not limited to, obtaining information from all references, employers, public agencies, licensing authorities, and educational institutions. I release from liability and consent to being discussed by any person contacted by VGEMG, and waive all rights and claims I may have against VGEMG for obtaining and using truthful, non-defamatory information in the employment process, or against anyone that provides information to VGEMG with the good faith belief that the information is true.
VGEMG does not tolerate unlawful discrimination or harassment based on sex, race, color, religion, national origin, citizenship, age, disability, or any other protected status in its employment practices. I understand that no question on this application will be used for the purpose of limiting or excluding an applicant from consideration for employment on the basis of sex, race, color, religion, national origin, citizenship, age, disability, protected Veteran Status, or any other protected status under applicable federal, state, or local law.
I understand that this Employment Application is not an offer of employment and nothing contained in this Employment Application constitutes an employment agreement or contract. Assurances or promises to the contrary—oral, written, or implied—are invalid unless they are in writing and signed by an Officer of VGEMG. I UNDERSTAND THAT IF I AM HIRED, AND UNLESS I SIGN A WRITTEN EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT FOR TERM, I WILL BE AN EMPLOYEE “AT WILL,” MEANING I AM NOT HIRED FOR ANY DEFINITE LENGTH OF TIME, AND EITHER I OR VGEMG CAN TERMINATE MY EMPLOYMENT AT ANY TIME FOR ANY OR NO REASON, WITH OR WITHOUT CAUSE, WITH OR WITHOUT NOTICE. You acknowledge that no oral or written statements or representations can alter your at-will employment status, except for a written Employment Agreement for Term or a written statement signed by you and an authorized VGEMG Officer.
I also understand that if I am hired, I will be required to provide proof of identity and legal authorization to work in the United States, including the completion of an I-9 Form.
As a condition of my employment, I understand and agree that I will be expected to abide by all of VGEMG’s rules, regulations, and policies set forth in VGEMG’s Employee Handbook or other communications distributed by VGEMG. I understand that testing for illegal drugs will be administered to all final candidates for whom an offer has been extended. I understand that VGEMG may request mandatory random drug testing, at any time, in accordance with applicable federal, state, or local laws.
If employed, I also understand and agree that VGEMG retains the sole right in its business judgment to modify, suspend, interpret, or cancel, in whole or in part, at any time, with or without notice, any published or unpublished policy, practice, procedure, process, or benefit, unless it is otherwise set forth in any written Employment Agreement.
I understand that this Employment Application remains current for one (1) year. At the conclusion of that time, it will be necessary to reapply and fill out a new application in order to be considered for employment.
