I authorize you to make such investigations and inquiries of my personal, employment, financial or medical history and other related matters as may be necessary in arriving at an employment decision. (Generally inquiries regarding medical history will be made only if and after a conditional offer of employment has been extended.) I hereby release employers, scholls, health care providers and other persons from all liability in responding to inquiries and releasing information in connection with my application.

I understand information I provide regarding current and/or previous employers may be used, and those employers will be contacted, for the purpose of investingating my safety performance history as required by 49 CFR 391.23 (d) and (e). I understand that I have the right to:

  • Review information provided by the previous employers;
  • Have errors in the information corrected by previous employers and for those previous employers to re-send the corrected information to the prospective employer; and
  • Have a rebuttal statement attached to the alleged erroneous information, if the previous employer(s) and I cannot agree on the accuracy of the information.

This certifies this application was completed by me, and that all entries on it and information in it are true and complete to the best of my knowledge.

In accordance with the provisions of Section 604 (b)(2)(A) of the Fair Credit Reporting Act, Public Law 91-508, as amended by the Consumer Credit Reporting Act of 1996 (Title II, Subtitle D, Chapter I, of Public Law 104-208), you are being informed that reports verifying your previous employment, previous drug and alcohol test results, and your driving record may be obtained on you for employment purposes.

If any final adverse action is taken against you based upon a background report, the Prospective Employer will notify you that the action has been taken and that the background report was the reason for the action. The Prospective Employer cannot obtain background reports from the consumer reporting agencies or other sources regarding you unless you consent in writing. If you agree that the Prospective Employer may obtain such background reports, please read the following and sign below:
