Acknowledgement of employment process

Please read the following carefully before creating your job candidate profile

I certify that all statements I have made in this job candidate profile and associated job applications and attached materials are true and complete. I understand that misrepresentation or omission of information asked of me in the employment process may result in denial of employment or in termination.

I authorize Puget Sound Energy (PSE) to conduct a criminal background check, motor vehicle check, to verify education and work history information, and to check references. I release PSE and all providers of information from any liability occurring in connection with sharing information for the purpose of considering me for employment.

I understand that before hiring any person, for any person hired, and from time to time thereafter, PSE may wish to obtain a "consumer report" from a consumer reporting agency in order to evaluate an individual for hiring, promotion, reassignment or retention. If such a report is obtained regarding me, it may include details regarding my credit worthiness, credit standing, credit capacity, character, general reputation, personal characteristics, or mode of living. I have a right to request that PSE provide me with a complete and accurate disclosure of the nature and scope of any investigation requested. PSE will use any such report received regarding me only for permissible purposes.

I understand that if I am hired, I must prove that I meet the age requirements of applicable laws and that I am legally authorized to work in the United States. I understand that I may be required to pass pre-employment and random drug/alcohol tests and a security clearance.

I agree, as a condition of employment, to comply with PSE's rules and job requirements. I understand that if I accept a position that is within a job classification covered by a collective bargaining agreement, I will be expected to adhere to the Union's requirements. No promise of employment has been made to me.

I understand that if I accept a position covered by 49 CFR 391 or 40.25 the information I provide regarding current or previous employers may be used, and those employers may be contacted, for the purpose of investigating my safety performance history as required by 49 CFR 391.22(d) and (e). I understand I have the right to: review information provided by 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 this alleged erroneous information, if the previous employers and I cannot agree on the accuracy of their information.
