Background Investigation and Physical Exam
All offers of employment will be contingent on the candidate for employment passing a physical exam, which will include an alcohol and drug test. The physical exam will be scheduled prior to the first day of employment, and is paid by the City. Some positions also require a complete background investigation contingent with an offer of employment. Candidates whose offer of employment is contingent on passing the background investigation will be required to sign an authorization, which must be notarized.
Authorization and Certification
The candidate’s signature on the employment application attests to the following authorization and certification:
I certify that the information given by me in this application is true in all respects, and I agree that if the information given is found to be false in any way, it shall be considered sufficient cause for denial of employment or discharge. I understand that nothing contained in this employment application or in the granting of an interview is intended to create an employment contract between the City of Manchester and myself for either employment or for the providing of any benefit. No promises regarding employment have been made to me. If an employment relationship is established, I understand that I have the right to terminate my employment at any time and that the City of Manchester retains the same right.
I understand that prior to being offered employment with the City of Manchester, I may be requested to take pre-employment exams and/or tests. In the event I have a disability which will affect my ability to take the test, I will so inform the City of Manchester prior to the administration of the test so that a reasonable accommodation can be made. Requested accommodations may include accessible testing sites, modified testing conditions, and accessible testing formats. The City of Manchester reserves the right to require medical documentation concerning the need for the accommodation. I understand that if employed, policies and rules which are issued are not conditions of employment and that the City of Manchester may revise policies or procedures, in whole or part, at any time.
Legal Right to Work
