APPLICATION FOR EMPLOYMENT

The City Of Anderson is an equal employment opportunity employer dedicated to a policy of nondiscrimination in employment upon any basis, including race, color, creed, religion, age,
sex, national origin, ancestry, sexual orientation, marital status, military status, or the presence of any physical or mental medical condition or disability. In reading and answering the
following questions, please keep in mind that none of the questions are intended to imply any limitations, illegal preferences, or discrimination based upon any non-job-related information.

I promise that the information provided in this employment application (and accompanying the resume, if any) is true and complete, and I understand that any false information or significant omissions may
disqualify me from further consideration for employment and may be justification for my dismissal from employment if discovered at a later date. I agree to immediately notify The City if I should be convicted of a felony, or any crime involving dishonesty or a breach of trust while my job application is pending, or during my period of employment if hired.

I authorize the investigation of all statements contained in this application (and accompanying resume, if any). I also authorize The City to contact my present employer (unless otherwise noted in this application form), past employers, and listed references. I understand that the City may request an investigative consumer report from a consumer reporting agency that includes
information as to my character, general reputation, personal characteristics, and mode of living. I understand that the investigative consumer report may involve personal interviews with my neighbors, friends, relatives, former employers, schools, and others. I also understand that under the Federal Fair Credit Reporting Act I have the right to make a written request to The
City, within a reasonable time, for the disclosure of the name and address of the consumer reporting agency so that I may obtain a complete disclosure of the nature and scope of the investigation.

I authorize any person, school, current employer (except as previously noted), past employer(s), and organizations named in this application form (and accompanying a resume, if any) to provide The City with relevant information and opinion that may be useful to The City in making a hiring decision, and I release such persons and organizations from any legal liability in making such statements.

If hired, I give permission for a complete physical examination and I consent to the release to The City of any and all medical information, as may be deemed necessary by The City in judging my capability to do the work for which I am applying.

I understand that if hired and if my employment is terminated by The City for dishonesty, breach of trust, or any criminal act, the authorities may be notified and I may be criminally prosecuted. I also understand that, if hired, I may not hold other employment, nor engage in sales, investments or other activities that create a conflict of interest with my position with The City.

I understand that this application does not, by itself, create a contract of employment. I understand and agree that, if hired, MY EMPLOYMENT IS FOR NO DEFINITE PERIOD OF TIME, and
may, regardless of the date of payment of my wages or salary, BE TERMINATED AT ANY TIME; I understand that NO PERSON IS AUTHORIZED TO CHANGE ANY OF THE TERMS
MENTIONED IN THIS EMPLOYMENT APPLICATION FORM.

IF YOU ARE HIRED, A MEDICAL EXAMINATION WILL BE REQUIRED BEFORE YOU START WORK. IF THE EXAMINATION DISCLOSES MEDICAL CONDITIONS THAT PREVENT YOU FROM SUCCESSFULLY PERFORMING THE ESSENTIAL FUNCTIONS OF THE JOB, THE CITY WILL ATTEMPT TO MAKE ACCOMMODATIONS TO ALLOW YOU TO WORK. IF NO REASONABLE ACCOMMODATIONS CAN BE FOUND, OR THEY CAUSE AN UNDUE HARDSHIP ON THE CITY, THE TENTATIVE OFFER OF EMPLOYMENT WILL BE WITHDRAWN.

In connection with your application for employment (including a contract for services), understand that consumer reports or investigative consumer reports which may contain public record information may be
requested or made on you including consumer credit, criminal records, driving record, education, prior employer verification, workers compensations claims and others. These reports will include experience
