Rudolph Body and Paint is a drug-free workplace. As a condition of employment, all job applicants who are offered employment by Rudolph Body and Paint must agree to take a pre-employment drug test. The cost of the test is $43.00 and is conducted by the Human Resources Department. Rudolph Body and Paint requires the applicant to pay for the drug test up front. Payment must be made on the day of the drug test, which will be scheduled either by the Department Manager or the Human Resources Department. Cash or credit/debit cards are acceptable forms of payment.
Rudolph reserves the right to deny employment upon receipt of a positive confirmed drug test. An applicant may be denied employment as a result of a positive drug test; an applicant who refuses to submit to a drug test will not be offered employment.
Those applicants that are hired by Rudolph Body and Paint will be refunded the $43.00 pre-employment drug test payment upon completing two months of employment. Rudolph Body and Paint will reserve the right to retain the $43.00 drug test payment if an applicant is not hired based on unfavorable pre-hire results.
In the event of my employment to a position at Rudolph Body and Paint, I will comply with all rules and regulations of Rudolph Body and Paint. I understand that Rudolph Body and Paint reserves the right to require me to submit to a test for the presence of drugs or alcohol in my system prior to employment and at any time during my employment, to the extent permitted by law. I also understand that any offer of employment may be contingent upon the passing of a physical examination. I consent to the disclosure of the results of any physical examination and related tests to Rudolph Body and Paint. I also understand that I may be required to take other tests such as personality and honesty tests, prior to and during my employment. I understand that should I decline to sign this consent or take any of the above tests, my application for employment may be rejected or my employment may be terminated. I understand that bonding may be a condition of hire. If it is, I will be so advised either before or after hiring and a bond application will have to be completed.
I further understand that Rudolph Body and Paint may contact my previous employers. I authorize those employers to disclose to Rudolph Body and Paint all records and information pertinent to my employment with them. In addition to authorizing the release of any information regarding my employment, I hereby waive any rights or claims I have or may have against my former employers, their agents, employees, and representatives, as well as other individuals who release information to Rudolph Body and Paint, and release them from any and all liability, claims, or damages that may directly or indirectly result from the use, disclosure, or release of any such information by any person or party, whether such information is favorable or unfavorable to me. I further understand that as a condition of employment, I may be required to complete additional documentation which would permit Rudolph Body and Paint and its designated Investigative Consumer Reporting Agency to conduct an investigation of my background, which may include inquiry into my past employment, education, and activities, including, but not limited to, credit, criminal background information and driving record.
I hereby state that all the information that I have provided on this application, or any other documents completed or provided by me in connection with my application or employment, or in any interview is true and accurate. I have withheld nothing that would, if disclosed, affect this application unfavorably. I understand that if I am employed and any information provided to Rudolph Body and Paint is found to be false or incomplete in any respect, I may be dismissed.
I further agree and acknowledge that Rudolph Body and Paint and I will utilize binding arbitration to resolve all disputes that may arise out of the employment context. Both Rudolph Body and Paint and I agree that any claim, dispute, and/or controversy that either I may have against Rudolph Body and Paint (or its owners, directors, officers, managers, employees, agents, and parties affiliated with its employee benefit and health plans) or Rudolph Body and Paint may have against me, arising from, related to, or having any relationship or connection whatsoever with my seeking employment with, employment by, or other association with Rudolph Body and Paint shall be submitted to and determined exclusively by binding arbitration. I acknowledge that Rudolph Body and Paint’s business and the nature of my employment in that business affect interstate commerce. I agree that the arbitration and this agreement shall be controlled by the Federal Arbitration Act, in conformity with the procedures of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Both Rudolph Body and Paint and I agree that any arbitration proceeding must move forward under the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 3-4) even though the claims may also involve or relate to parties who are not parties to the arbitration agreement and/or claims that are not subject to arbitration: thus, a court may not refuse to enforce this arbitration agreement and may not stay the arbitration proceeding despite any state statutory provision permitting such action. Included within the scope of this Agreement are all disputes, whether based on tort, contract, statute (including, but not limited to, any claims of discrimination and harassment, whether they be based on the Texas Commission on Human Rights Act, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, or any other state or federal law or regulation), equitable law, or otherwise, with exception of claims arising under the National Labor Relations Act which are brought before the National Labor Relations Board, claims for medical and disability benefits under the Workers’ Compensation Act, and Unemployment Compensation claims filed with the state, or as otherwise required by state or federal law. However, nothing herein shall prevent me from filing and pursuing proceedings before the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or equivalent State agency (although if I choose to pursue a claim following the exhaustion of such administrative remedies, that claim would be subject to the provisions of this Agreement). In addition to any other requirements imposed by law, the arbitrator selected shall be a retired federal or state trial court Judge, or otherwise qualified individual to whom the parties mutually agree and shall be subject to disqualification on the same grounds as would apply to a judge of such court. All rules of pleading, all rules of evidence, all rights to resolution of the dispute by means of motions for summary judgment, and judgment on the pleadings, shall apply and be observed. Resolution of the dispute shall be based solely upon the law governing the claims and defenses pleaded, and the arbitrator may not invoke any basis (including but not limited to, notions of "just cause") other than such controlling law. The arbitrator shall have the immunity of a judicial officer from civil liability when acting in the capacity of an arbitrator, which immunity supplements any other existing immunity. Likewise, all communications during or in connection with the arbitration proceedings are privileged. As reasonably required to allow full use and benefit of this agreement's modifications to the Act’s procedures, the arbitrator shall extend the times set by the Act for the giving of notices and setting of hearings. Awards shall include the arbitrator's written reasoned opinion. I understand and agree to this binding arbitration provision, and both Rudolph Body and Paint and I give up our right to trial by jury of any claim Rudolph Body and Paint or I may have against each other.
If hired, I agree as follows: My employment and compensation is terminable at-will, is for no definite period, and my employment and compensation may be terminated by either Rudolph Body and Paint (employer) or me at any time and for any reason whatsoever, with or without good cause.
This is the entire agreement between Rudolph Body and Paint and me regarding dispute resolution, the length of my employment, and the reasons for termination of employment, and this agreement supersedes any and all prior agreements regarding these issues. It is further agreed and understood that any agreement contrary to the foregoing must be entered into, in writing, by the President of Rudolph Body and Paint. No supervisor or representative of Rudolph Body and Paint, other than its President, has any authority to enter into any agreement for employment for any specified period of time or make any agreement contrary to the foregoing. Oral representations made before or after you are hired do not alter this Agreement.
If any term or provision, or portion of this Agreement is declared void or unenforceable it shall be severed, and the remainder of this Agreement shall be enforceable.
IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS REGARDING THIS STATEMENT, PLEASE ASK A COMPANY REPRESENTATIVE BEFORE SIGNING. DO NOT SIGN UNTIL YOU HAVE READ THE ABOVE STATEMENT & AGREEMENT.
