I certify that all of the statements made by me on this application for employment are true, correct, and complete to the best of my

dismissal from employment.
I authorize the City of Groton to check the references provided, and further authorize the investigation of all matters contained in this

demonstrate my fitness for continued employment.
I understand that, as part of the application procedure for employment at the City of Groton, I will be required to submit to a urinalysis

understand that, if the test is positive, I will be given a copy of the results, if requested.
I understand that as part of the application process, the City of Groton conducts thorough background checks (which may include a
check of my criminal history) and credit checks done on prospective employees. I agree, if contacted with respect to such background
check, that I will fully cooperate and provide any information requested.
The applicant is not required to disclose the existence of any arrest, criminal charge or conviction, the records of which have been

I understand that if at any time (now or in the future) the City of Groton cannot insure me due to my motor vehicle operator history my
employment will be terminated.

Anti-Discrimination Notice. It is an unlawful employment practice for an employer to fail or refuse to hire or discharge any individual,
or otherwise to discriminate against any individual with respect to that individual’s terms and conditions of employment, because of
such individual’s race, ethnicity, color, religion, sex, national origin, pregnancy, or gender identity.
This employer is subject to certain nondiscrimination and affirmative action recordkeeping and reporting requirements which
require the employer to invite employees to voluntarily self-identify their race/ethnicity. Submission of this information is voluntary
and refusal to provide it will not subject you to any adverse treatment. The information obtained will be kept confidential and may
only be used in accordance with the provisions of applicable federal laws, executive orders, and regulations, including those which
require the information to be summarized and reported to the Federal Government for civil rights enforcement purposes.
If you choose not to self-identify your race/ethnicity at this time, the federal government requires this employer to determine this
information by visual survey and/or other available information.
For civil rights monitoring and enforcement purposes only, all race/ethnicity information will be collected and reported in the seven
categories identified below. The definitions for each category have been established by the federal government. If you choose to
voluntarily self-identify, you may mark only one of the boxes presented below.
