i was checking out my former employer's web site. they now have an on-line application form.....guess they think they might scare off someone if they actually walked in the door.
anyway, down at the bottom was this bit of information:
i certify that the information given by me in this application is true in all respects, and i agree that if employed and it is found to be false in any way, that i may be subject to dismissal without notice, if and when discovered. i authorize the use of any information in this application to enable ******** ****** to verify my statements, and i authorize past employers, doctors, all references, and any other persons to answer all questions asked by ****** ****** concerning my ability, character, reputation, and previous employment record. i release all such persons from any liability or damages for providing such information. i further agree, if employed, that i am to work faithfully and diligently, to be careful and avoid accidents, to come to work promptly, and to not be absent for any reason without prior notice to my supervisor.
i understand that if i am employed, i will have the right to quit my employment at any time, for any or no reason. i also understand that the hospital has the right to terminate my employment at any time, for any or no reason.
i agree to submit to a physical examination, including a drug examination whenever requested by ******** ******; and if employed, i agree to abide by all present and subsequently issued personnel policies and rules of the hospital.
"hmmmm and that's the way it is in a no right to work state"

I work in the state of SC and employers can say pretty much anything they want to, or don't want to, as far as reference.
I called the Labor Board in Columbia and ask this specific question d/t a "non-reference" I was given.
I also thought that all they could give was employment dates and rehire or no rehire==not so. They can say anything they want!!
SO, just another reason to lay low and keep our mouths shut, don't make waves for the institution that is shafting it's nurses and patients. Yea, right..
To the original question by P_RN; no, I wouldn't sign it. That's one of the reasons I work agency. Cuts out alot of the BS.
