I understand that this application will be given consideration but its receipt does not imply employment. I understand that GECAC does not guarantee  employment for any specific length of time, regardless of the quality of work. 

I understand that GECAC is an "At Will" employer and I understand that employment may be terminated by me or GECAC at any time, with or without  cause and with or without prior notice. I understand that no one except the Vice President/ Human Resources with the approval of the Chief Executive  Officer is authorized to agree to employ me for any period of time and that if any statements to the contrary have been made to me in connection with my  application for employment, those statements are incorrect and not binding on GECAC. I understand that neither this document, the personnel handbook,  nor any offer of employment constitutes an employment contract. 

I understand that all offers of employment are considered pending and conditional until all required documents have been submitted. These documents  may include, but are not limited to: documents establishing my identity and work authorization, clearances, proof of education, references, proof of driver's  license and automobile insurance, health evaluation completed by a doctor selected by the agency, and a Drug Screening. The specific documents to be  required will be consistent with the job description for the position with which I am being offered employment.

I hereby acknowledge that I have read the above statements and understand the same: *

Compliance with the Greater Erie Community Action Committee Drug & Alcohol Abuse/Testing Policy 

As an applicant to this agency, I understand and agree that I am subject to GECAC's Drug & Alcohol Abuse/ Testing Policy. I also understand that any offer of  employment by the agency may require a drug test and if so, the offer is contingent upon successfully passing a Drug Screening Test. I hereby give my  consent to the agency to conduct a urinalysis for drug testing purposes. 

I understand and agree that the Drug Screening Test will be performed by a laboratory selected by the agency and that the laboratory is solely responsible  for the accuracy of the results of the Drug Screening Test.  

I agree to execute all other consent forms required in connection with any Drug Screening Test, including any forms provided by the laboratory granting  permission to take a urine specimen and release the results of my Drug Screening Test(s) to GECAC Vice President/ Human Resources. 

I understand and agree that if the pre‐employment Drug Screening Test indicates a violation of the Drug Abuse Policy, the contingent job offer will be null  and void. 

In return for my being considered for employment, I hereby release and hold harmless GECAC, its affiliates, successors, and their officers, directors, and  employees from liability whatsoever arising out of or related to any Drug Screening Test. 

Refusal to sign the required consent for Drug Screening Test will be deemed refusal to take the drug test and will preclude further consideration of my  application. 

If you would like to review a summary of the Drug & Alcohol Abuse Policy, please ask a Human Resources representative.

*NOTE: If you are a minor (under the age of 18 years), you must have the Parental Consent and Release Form signed and dated by your parent or legal  guardian and notarized. Ask a Human Resources representative for this form. The form must be returned to the GECAC Human Resource Department. 

I hereby acknowledge that I have read the above statements and understand the same: *

I authorize GECAC to make a thorough investigation of my personal history, including, if any, a record of law enforcement activity, my character, my  education, my past employment, job activities, and general reputation.  

I authorize any law enforcement agency, and previous employers or educational institutions and personal references specified by me in this application, to release to GECAC any and all information regarding my employment or scholastic standing together with any other information, personal or otherwise, that  may or may not be on their records, and I release those law enforcement agencies, employers and educational institutions from liability for any damage or  injury to me arising out of the release of information.  

I hereby acknowledge that I have read the above statements and understand the same: *
