Applicant Statement

I declare each of the answers given to the questions on this application to be complete and true to the best of my knowledge. I acknowledge that consideration for employment is contingent on the results of a reference and background check. I understand that any material misrepresentation or omission may be cause for denying my application, withdrawing any offer of employment, or immediate discharge, regardless of when such misrepresentation is discovered.

I authorize the investigation of all statements given in this application, including contacting former employers for reference verification. In addition I give my consent for all contacted persons to provide information concerning this application, and I release and hold harmless Guide Dogs, its officers, employees and agents and any other person, or any public or private entity, from any and all legal claims arising from the investigation of the statements contained in this application and my application for employment.

If I am hired by Guide Dogs, I understand and agree that:

  • Employment is "at will" and may be terminated at any time, with or without notice, with or without cause, at the discretion of either Guide Dogs or myself. This policy may not be modified or varied, except in writing signed by the President of Guide Dogs for the Blind.
  • I acknowledge that should any disputes arise between Guide Dogs and me, I am bound by the terms and conditions of Guide Dogs' Formal Dispute Resolution Policy, which requires that all employment-related disputes, including but not limited to claims concerning my application for employment, my actual or alleged employment with Guide Dogs, compensation, claims of harassment, discrimination or retaliation, or the termination of my employment, be resolved only by an arbitrator through final and binding arbitration. This agreement constitutes a waiver of all rights to a civil court action or a jury trial in such matters. I understand that I may request a copy of this policy before signing or submitting this application.
  • Consistent with law, Guide Dogs reserves the right to disallow or limit employment of relatives and cohabitants where problems of supervision, security or conflicts of interest may arise.
  • If employed in the capacity as an Instructor Assistant, Apprentice or Licensed Instructor, I understand that continued employment may be contingent upon my obtaining a special license to drive a class bus and passing a CA state-administered examination to be licensed as a Guide Dog Instructor.
  • If my job requires driving as a regular duty, I understand that continued employment may be contingent upon my insurability to drive a vehicle at regular risk rates.
