Please read the following statements, and click "I agree" at the bottom of this page to signify your understanding. If you need clarification on any statement, please contact U.S. Bank Human Resources.
Pre-employment Screening Policy
As a condition of employment, U.S. Bank requires the successful completion of a criminal background check. As part of regulatory requirements, all U.S. Bank employees may be required to complete numerous criminal background checks throughout their career with the bank. These checks are administered in accordance with applicable state laws, provisions of U.S. Bank policy and in accordance with applicable guidelines of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (See article 15 U.S.C. § 1681).
Drug and Alcohol Policy
U.S. Bank recognizes that alcohol and drug abuse adversely affects job performance and safety in the workplace. We believe that a productive and safe work environment is in the best interest of our employees, our customers and our shareholders. Therefore, U.S. Bank prohibits or restricts the use of alcohol, narcotics, depressants, stimulants, and/or other controlled substances, as well as the use of prescription drugs when resulting behavior adversely affects work performance. This policy applies to all applicants for employment and to all employees, including contract or employees of temporary employment agencies. The policy is applicable at all company facilities or wherever company employees are performing company business.
Drug tests may be conducted for external applicants who are offered employment or, where permitted by state law, for new employees who are selected for testing. Drug and alcohol testing for existing employees will be limited to situations where there is reasonable suspicion, as determined by U.S. Bank, or where the employee has been referred by U.S. Bank for chemical dependency treatment or evaluation, or is participating in a chemical dependency treatment program under an employee benefit plan. Reasonable suspicion may include situations where an employee's work performance may be adversely affected or there is a reason to believe there is a violation of this policy. All applicable federal and state laws governing testing will be followed throughout the process. U.S. Bank will use only certified laboratories to conduct the test. Test results will be kept confidential and used only for business purposes. Tests are reviewed and verified by an independent Medical Review Officer.
Employees and/or job applicants may refuse to submit to a drug and/or alcohol test; however, refusal may result in a conditional job offer being rescinded or disciplinary action up to and including termination. Individuals tested may explain a positive test result on a confirmatory test or request and pay for an additional confirmatory test using the same specimen. Positive test results may result in a conditional job offer to an external applicant being rescinded and an employee being referred to a rehabilitation program and/or being subjected to disciplinary action, up to and including termination.
Individuals tested may receive copies of their test results upon written request to Human Resources.
Proof of Eligibility for Work
I understand that if I am hired, I must be able to prove my identity and my eligibility to work in the United States using forms of documentation deemed acceptable by the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services. I acknowledge that failure to do so may constitute grounds for termination or rescission of an offer of employment.
If state law requires me to furnish a work permit because I am under the age of 18, I will do so no later than my first day of employment.
Employment of Relatives
Because of the potential for conflicts of interest, the appearance of favoritism and other issues, U.S. Bank reserves the right to prohibit or restrict the employment of relatives, as permitted by law.
I understand that nothing in this application is intended to imply or create a contract for employment. I further understand that, except as prohibited by law, if hired, my employment will be at-will and may be terminated by me or by U.S. Bank at any time, with or without notice, for any reason, and that the terms of my employment, compensation or benefits may be changed at any time, without advance notice or my consent. I also understand that while personnel policies and procedures may necessarily change from time to time, no representative of U.S. Bank has the authority to enter into any agreement with me for any specified period of time or to guarantee some other benefit, unless approved by the Director of Human Resources or his or her designee.
It is unlawful in Massachusetts to require or administer a lie detector test as a condition of employment or continued employment. An employer who violates this law shall be subject to criminal penalties and civil liability.
I hereby acknowledge that
