BACKGROUND CHECK DISCLOSURE AND AUTHORIZATION FORM

In the interest of maintaining the safety and security of our customers, employees and property, __________________________ (the “Company”) will order a “consumer report” (a background report) or “investigative consumer report" on you in connection with your employment application, and if you are hired, or if you already work for the Company, may order additional background reports on you for employment purposes.

The background check company, ADP Screening and Selection Services, will prepare the background report for the Company. ADP Screening and Selection Services is located at 301 Remington Street, Fort Collins, CO, 80524, and can be reached by phone at 800-367-5933 or at their Internet Web site address www.adpselect.com.

The background report may contain information concerning your character, general reputation, personal characteristics, mode of living, and credit standing. The types of information that may be ordered include but are not limited to: Social Security number verification; criminal, public, educational and, as appropriate, driving records checks; verification of prior employment; reference, licensing and certification checks; credit reports; drug testing results; and, if applicable, worker’s compensation injuries. Workers’ compensation information will only be requested in compliance with federal Americans with Disabilities Act and/or any other applicable federal, state or local laws and only after a conditional job offer is made. Credit history will only be requested when permitted by law and where such information is substantially related to the duties and responsibilities of the position for which you are applying. The information may be obtained from private and public record sources, including personal interviews with your associates, friends, and neighbors. (An “investigative consumer report” is a background report that includes information from such personal interviews, except in California where that term means any background report that is not a credit report.) The nature and scope of the most common form of investigative consumer report is an investigation into your education and/or employment history conducted by ADP Screening and Selection Services or another outside organization.

You may request more information about the nature and scope of an investigative consumer report, if any, by telephoning the Company at ____-____-_____. A summary of your rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act is also being provided to you with this form.

A Summary of Your Rights Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act

The federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) promotes the accuracy, fairness, and privacy of information in the files of consumer reporting agencies. There are many types of consumer reporting agencies, including credit bureaus and specialty agencies (such as agencies that sell information about check writing histories, medical records, and rental history records). Here is a summary of your major rights under the FCRA. For more information, including information about additional rights, go to www.consumerfinance.gov/learnmore or write to: Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, 1700 G Street N.W., Washington, DC 20552.

• You must be told if information in your file has been used against you. Anyone who uses a credit report or another type of consumer report to deny your application for credit, insurance, or employment – or to take another adverse action against you – must tell you, and must give you the name, address, and phone number of the agency that provided the information. • You have the right to know what is in your file. You may request and obtain all the information about you in the files of a consumer reporting agency (your “file disclosure”). You will be required to provide proper identification, which may include your Social Security number. In many cases, the disclosure will be free. You are entitled to a free file disclosure if: ← a person has taken adverse action against you because of information in your credit report; ← you are the victim of identity theft and place a fraud alert in your file; ← your file contains inaccurate information as a result of fraud; ← you are on public assistance; ← you are unemployed but expect to apply for employment within 60 days.
In addition, all consumers are entitled to one free disclosure every 12 months upon request from each nationwide credit bureau and from nationwide specialty consumer reporting agencies. See www.consumerfinance.gov/learnmore for additional information. • You have the right to ask for a credit score. Credit scores are numerical summaries of your credit-worthiness based on information from credit bureaus. You may request a credit score from consumer reporting agencies that create scores or distribute scores used in residential real property loans, but you will have to pay for it. In some mortgage transactions, you will receive credit score information for free from the mortgage lender. • You have the right to dispute incomplete or inaccurate information. If you identify information in your file that is incomplete or inaccurate, and report it to the consumer reporting agency, the agency must investigate unless your dispute is frivolous. See www.consumerfinance.gov/learnmore for an explanation of dispute procedures. • Consumer reporting agencies must correct or delete inaccurate, incomplete, or unverifiable information. Inaccurate, incomplete or unverifiable information must be removed or corrected, usually within 30 days. However, a consumer reporting agency may continue to report information it has verified as accurate. • Consumer reporting agencies may not report outdated negative information. In most cases, a consumer reporting agency may not report negative information that is more than seven years old, or bankruptcies that are more than 10 years old. • Access to your file is limited. A consumer reporting agency may provide information about you only to people with a valid need -- usually to consider an application with a creditor, insurer, employer, landlord, or other business. The FCRA specifies those with a valid need for access. • You must give your consent for reports to be provided to employers. A consumer reporting agency may not give out information about you to your employer, or a potential employer, without your written consent given to the employer. Written consent generally is not required in the trucking industry. For more information, go to www.consumerfinance.gov/learnmore. • You may limit “prescreened” offers of credit and insurance you get based on information in your credit report. Unsolicited “prescreened” offers for credit and insurance must include a toll-free phone number you can call if you choose to remove your name and address from the lists these offers are based on. You may opt-out with the nationwide credit bureaus at 1-800-XXX-XXXX. • You may seek damages from violators. If a consumer reporting agency, or, in some cases, a user of consumer reports or a furnisher of information to a consumer reporting agency violates the FCRA, you may be able to sue in state or federal court. • Identity theft victims and active duty military personnel have additional rights. For more information, visit www.consumerfinance.gov/learnmore.

States may enforce the FCRA, and many states have their own consumer reporting laws. In some cases, you may have more rights under state law. For more information, contact your state or local protection agency or your state Attorney General. For information about your federal rights, contact:

A Summary of Your Rights
Under the Provisions of California Civil Code Section 1786.22

The Investigative Consumer Reporting Agencies Act (ICRA) is designed to promote accuracy, fairness, and privacy of information in the files of every "consumer reporting agency" (CRA). You can find the complete text of the ICRA, at the California Privacy Protection web site (http://www.privacy.ca.gov/icraa.htm). The ICRA gives you specific rights, as outlined below. You may have additional rights under federal law. You may contact a state or local consumer protection agency or a state attorney general to learn those rights.

(a) An investigative consumer reporting agency shall supply files and information required under Section 1786.10 during normal business hours and on reasonable notice.

(b) Files maintained on a consumer shall be made available for the consumer's visual inspection, as follows:
(1) In person, if he appears in person and furnishes proper identification. A copy of his file shall also be available to the consumer for a fee not to exceed the actual costs of duplication services provided.
(2) By certified mail, if he makes a written request, with proper identification, for copies to be sent to a specified addressee. Investigative consumer reporting agencies complying with requests for certified mailings under this section shall not be liable for disclosures to third parties caused by mishandling of mail after such mailings leave the investigative consumer reporting agencies.
(3) A summary of all information contained in files on a consumer and required to be provided by Section 1786.10 shall be provided by telephone, if the consumer has made a written request, with proper identification for telephone disclosure, and the toll charge, if any, for the telephone call is prepaid by or charged directly to the consumer.

(c) The term "proper identification" as used in subdivision (b) shall mean that information generally deemed sufficient to identify a person. Such information includes documents such as a valid driver’s license, social security account number, military identification card, and credit cards. Only if the consumer is unable to reasonably identify himself with the information described above, may an investigative consumer reporting agency require additional information concerning the consumer's employment and personal or family history in order to verify his identity.

(d) The investigative consumer reporting agency shall provide trained personnel to explain to the consumer any information furnished him pursuant to Section 1786.10.

(e) The investigative consumer reporting agency shall provide a written explanation of any coded information contained in files maintained on a consumer. This written explanation shall be distributed whenever a file is provided to a consumer for visual inspection as required under Section 1786.22.

(f) The consumer shall be permitted to be accompanied by one other person of his choosing, who shall furnish reasonable identification. An investigative consumer reporting agency may require the consumer to furnish a written statement granting permission to the consumer reporting agency to discuss the consumer's file in such person's presence.

(1) "Public agency" means the state or any local subdivision thereof, or any state or local department, agency, board or commission.
(2) "Private employer" means any person, company, corporation, labor organization or association which employs ten or more persons.

(4) "License" means any certificate, license, permit or grant of permission required by the laws of this state, its political subdivisions or instrumentalities as a condition for the lawful practice of any occupation, employment, trade, vocation, business, or profession.

(1) There is a direct relationship between one or more of the previous criminal offenses and the specific license or employment sought or held by the individual; or
(2) the issuance or continuation of the license or the granting or continuation of the employment would involve an unreasonable risk to property or to the safety or welfare of specific individuals or the general public. §753.

(d) The time which has elapsed since the occurrence of the criminal offense or offenses. (e) The age of the person at the time of occurrence of the criminal offense or offenses. (f) The seriousness of the offense or offenses. (g) Any information produced by the person, or produced on his behalf, in regard to his rehabilitation and good conduct.

2. In making a determination pursuant to section seven hundred fifty-two of this chapter, the public agency or private employer shall also give consideration to a certificate of relief from disabilities or a certificate of good conduct issued to the applicant, which certificate shall create a presumption of rehabilitation in regard to the offense or offenses specified therein.

...Allison Winans Sullivan English 30 9.10.2012 The Understanding of Courage Courage is being able to stand up for what is right, even if that means others will be against you. Everyone has courage that lives inside of them, but not everyone let's it free. Abraham Lincoln was full of courage throughout his whole life. Lincoln went from being illiterate as a child to becoming one of the most revolutionist presidents in history. The one thing that made Lincoln so powerful was that he was filled with determination and courage. Courage is something that we all can acquire if we have a reason to be motivated. Lincoln once said “ It often requires more courage to dare to do right than to fear to do wrong.” and he is completely right. Fears are what will hold you back from actually showing courage when it needs to be shown. First, courage is not something you are born with. Not one person that has shown acts of courage has just woke up one day and been full of courage. Lincoln was illiterate when he was a boy, but with determination he taught himself to read and write. Lincoln was born and raised in a log cabin on his family's farm. Lincoln's father wanted Lincoln to stop reading all the time, but Lincoln did not want to stop his fascination with reading. To settle the dispute Lincoln and his father decided to make a compromise. The compromise between the two was that Lincoln could keep reading, but he had to get his farm work done first. To be able to accomplish this task Lincoln......

...man who has only the admirable qualities of human nature and seems to possess absolutely no unworthy traits whatsoever. John Steinbeck shows the ideal man who respects and is respected greatly in return. He is known as ‘the prince of the ranch’ suggesting that he has skill above all the other men in the ranch and able to do things others could not. He can ‘kill a fly on the wheeler’s butt with a bull whip without touching the mule.’ This shows his precision and skill on the ranch supporting his title as the ‘prince of the ranch’. Furthermore, John Steinbeck shows how Slim is a born leader. His ‘godlike manner’ implies that he is like god, kind, respected and always listened to. Everything he does is done with ‘dignity’. People respect him so much that ‘his word was taken on any subject be it politics or love’ and John Steinbeck furthers this by saying ‘Slim’s opinions were law’. This means that when Slim gives an opinion on a subject, it must be correct and any opinion against it was wrong. ‘His tone was friendly. It invited confidence without demanding it.’ This shows how only the nature in which he speaks can make someone confident and willing to speak about troubles that the person may be shy about and ashamed to speak of. Slim is also shown to be kind by the way that he is always calm and talks politely and always listens if someone wishes to speak. Curley is used in the novel as the complete opposite to Slim. He is nearly everything bad a person could be. He is the......

...Horrible treacherous Mountain range. She said that we would have to find her people for help. Once we found her people she realized that her brother was the leader of the tribe. It almost made me cry it was very sweet how they hadn’t seen each other In a very long time and then they put all of their love into the hug. Sacagawea's brother let the whole party use horses. We could cross the treacherous mountain range a lot faster now.   The first winter was the hardest time of all. I was cold every second and almost every part of my body receives frost bite. My feet were the worst. The thin moccasins provided no protection against cold. Still I was never allowed to complain. That would be cowardly. Each man consumed about a pound of meat per day so hunting was necessary. There were many animals discovered by us on the trip. I even myself discovered a couple. We discovered bison, prairie dogs, canada goose, goldfinch, mountain sheep, and bull snakes. The most terrifying of them all were the bears. They were massive and one swing at someone and that person was a gonner. The also never seemed to give up fighting even if one shot the bear multiple times. Prairie dogs were a discovery by me. I was walking out and a little dog like creature came running by. I asked Captain Lewis what it was and he said he had never seen it before. That was my first discovery ever. The part of the journey that tested the men and I  the most was when we discovered that there was a waterfall standing......

...scared many Who’s in Who Ville due to his appearance. His green skin, his yellow teeth and ugly snarl made him different from everyone else. The Grinch feels alone and feels the need to take everyone’s happiness away from them because it’s unfair to him that he’s not happy as well. Later on in the poem, we meet Cindy Lou, who was an innocent little girl wondering why the Grinch was at her house taking her Christmas tree, she felt really sad because he was taking away everything they had. She was wondering why he was taking everything but he said that he just wanted to fix the tree, Cindy Lou who trusted the Grinch easily because she grew up in a friendly, trustworthy environment. The Grinch sneaks through the town to take everyone’s gifts so that he can have them for himself. When it is Christmas morning, the Grinch watched the Who’s in who Ville with the expectation of the Who’s to be sad. As he came closer, he realized that the presents and Christmas trees didn’t matter to them; they didn’t care about the materialistic things about Christmas "Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store. / Maybe Christmas...perhaps...means a little bit more!" (Suess, 1957) All the Who’s truly cared about was being together. Although, throughout the poem, Dr. Seuss showed that the villain in the story ended up becoming the hero towards himself....

...cool Contrast between Lebanon and Saudi Arabia Culture is one of the treasured traits the some countries carry on throughout centuries, even during our time today. However, although some countries cherish their culture and value it, humans get so caught up with their everyday life routine that they tend to forget their culture and diminish their traditions. Culture is what makes us different that everyone else. Each country has its own culture and celebrations. For example, Lebanon and Saudi Arabia are two Middle Eastern countries that share the same language. Although these countries have some similarities, there is a wide variety of differences between them when it comes to politics, tradition and religion. Both countries share a common religion: Islam. Moreso, there are plenty of other religions in Lebanon. Islam is portrayed in more strict and conservative way in Saudi Arabia. In Saudi Arabia, religion plays a huge role in culture, traditions, and even politics. Religion is used as a way of living more than just a belief. For example, religion is tied in with women’s right and politics. No matter what religion they practice, women have to be covered from head to toes even if they were tourists visiting the country. It is the law. According to the editor Tore Kjeilen, “Officially Muslims constitute 100% of the population, but considering the considerable expatriate community, 90% is a better estimate. Even among citizens, there are......

...charged using existing plug sockets. However with existing plug sockets, charge rates are extremely low and charging away from home is not possible. Therefore to use a BEV to its fullest potential faster home chargers are needed, as are public charge stations. BEVs are not a new technology; they find their beginnings in Scotland in 1842 [4]. Initially they were preferred to gasoline and steam driven vehicles. In 1899 over 1500 BEVs were sold in the US compared to 900 gasoline vehicles [5]. In the first three decades of the 20th century New York had a charging station network for BEVs. BEVs were especially marketed to women as; 1) they were cleaner and had no emissions, 2) they were quieter than ICE vehicles, 3) they did not have any moving parts so were easier to maintain and 4) they didn't need to be started with a hand crank. The market leading BEV company was Detroit Electric, operating between 1907 and 1939. Their BEVs were capable of achieving ranges of 211 miles, but commonly achieved 80 miles. By 1910 the company was producing 800 vehicles per year and peak sales reached 1800 units in 1916 [6]. From the 1930s Internal Combustion Engine Vehicles (ICEVs) drove BEVs out of the marketplace. ICEVs quickly became dominant and were consolidated as the primary vehicle choice. They were cheaper than BEVs [5,7], had longer ranges, could be refilled in minutes and were capable of higher speeds. Crucially, oil had become readily available at a low cost [4]. The invention of the......

Some People Thinks it is cool smoking, other people thinks skateboarding is cool. But what is cool? Is it the way you act? The way you dress? The way you talks? There are a lot of opinions about that subject, what do you think is cool? The companies do a lot to make you think that their products are cool. They pay celebrities to wear their products and make commercials. It’s different what people do to look cool, some people read fashion magazines other peoples dress like their idols and the celebrities got stylists to dress them.

...if there is a perceived incompatibility or if the participants perceive that there is utility in conflict, that is, something to be gained or less to lose than by remaining passive. However, many writers, Long paragraphs like this could be split up more for easier reading. Note the excellent support from multiple sources including Handy (1993), Mullins (1996) and Edelmann (1993), argue that a certain amount of conflict is both inevitable and healthy, provided it is directed positively. The danger is that conflict can become personal and negative, and undermine individual and organisational performance. Striking a balance between the two is easier said than done and a manager will need to employ a variety of methods in attempting to do so. For the most part, the strategies for managing change and conflict in LIS are no different to those which apply to organisations in general because, essentially, they all deal with human reactions to a changing environment. Indeed the LIS literature on the subject reflects these general themes (for example, Eggleton, 1979; Allred, 1987; Baker, 1989; Buch, 1997; Pettas and Gilliland, 1992). Therefore, the framework for this discussion will a general one, with examples from LIS where appropriate. 1 1995, Concise, 9th ed.

While staying focus on being fit, eating is also an important attribute that I need to follow. These sacrifices besides playing soccer, relate me closest to the vocation of an athlete. I see myself in the present and future not involving work that would relate to be sitting in an office job, or a job that requires you to either write or study a lot, for example, mortgage broker, lawyer.
