By signing below, I certify that I have read, understand and agree to each of the following statements:

All of the information I have supplied on this application is true, accurate and complete, to the best of my knowledge, and I have not knowingly withheld any information that, if known to the City of Wooster, would affect my application unfavorably.

If I am hired by the City of Wooster, and if the City of Wooster discovers at any time during my employment that any of the statements or answers on this application are false, misleading, or incomplete, I may be dismissed immediately from my job.

This employment application will be considered only if it is submitted in response to a current job opening. If I want to be considered for a future job opening with the City of Wooster, I must fill out another application in response to that opening or contact the Human Resources Division to request consideration of this application.

If offered a position, I agree to submit to post-offer pre-employment testing for drugs or alcohol prior to beginning work with the City of Wooster, and understand that a positive test will form the basis for rescission of any job offer. I understand that if I am employed by the City of Wooster, I may be required, when job related and consistent with the City of Wooster's business needs, to undergo a medical examination or testing for alcohol. I further understand that I may be required to submit to a test for the use of illegal drugs.

In consideration of my employment with the City of Wooster, I agree to adhere to the City of Wooster’s core values and organizational goals and abide by all the City of Wooster’s rules and regulations. I understand that nothing in this employment application creates a contract of employment between me and the City of Wooster.

I understand that no manager or supervisor has the authority to make any employment agreement with me, either orally or in writing, which is not an at-will agreement. Only the Mayor or his designee has the authority to enter into an employment agreement with me for any specified period of time.

I agree to release to the City of Wooster or its designated agents all medical information, including but not limited to files, reports, x-rays, evaluations, and opinions held by medical personnel, to the extent such information is job-related and consistent with the City of Wooster's business needs. I acknowledge that this is a general release and that if hired, it remains in effect for the duration of my employment.

In the event of my personal indebtedness to the City of Wooster, I authorize the City of Wooster to withhold from my wages, including any last paycheck, such amounts as permitted by law to satisfy my obligation to the City of Wooster.


I understand and agree that any causes of action or claims that I may have or bring against the City of Wooster, or that the City of Wooster may have or bring against me, shall be commenced within the applicable statute of limitations period, within six (6) months of my knowledge of such claim or cause of action, or within six (6) months after my separation from employment, whichever is earlier.

I give the City of Wooster my permission to conduct any investigation regarding the information contained in my employment application, which the City of Wooster thinks is necessary to determine my qualifications for assuming a job with the City of Wooster. I give the City of Wooster my permission to contact any former employer, school, college or university, utility company, credit or finance bureau or office, any personal or professional reference, or any other appropriate source or individual for the purpose of gathering any information, personal or otherwise, that such sources may have about my character, general reputation, credit, education, or employment record, and I give my consent to any such source to release to the City of Wooster whatever information they have about me. I also unconditionally release all named and unnamed sources from any and all liability that might result from furnishing any information about me.
