Employment Application

  • NOTICE TO ALL APPLICANTS

    Before any applicant can begin work, the person must be able to verify, under federal law, that he or she is authorized to work in the United States. All applicants offered a position with South Lyon Area Recreation Authority (SLARA) will have to document their authorization to work before the hiring process will be complete.

    All applicants are being notified at this time that if selected for hire, it will be your responsibility to provide SLARA with documentation showing your right to work. SLARA is giving you notice so you may have those documents ready if you should be offered a position with this department. A Supervisor will review the documents at the time a conditional offer of employment is made.

    NOTE OF HANDICAPPER RIGHTS

    SLARA actively encourages applications by qualified individuals, and does not discriminate in its consideration of such applicants.  If you believe that any accommodation of a handicap will be necessary to permit you to perform the duties of the position, Michigan law requires that you notify the Recreation Director within 182 days after you knew or should have known that the accommodation was needed.

    APPLICANTS CERTIFICATION AND AGREEMENT (please read carefully)

    I hereby authorize and unqualifiedly grant permission to SLARA and its administration to make pre-employment inquires to verify the contents of my application for employment and/or the contents of my resume and any representations made verbally or in any letter of interest that I may have submitted. Further, I authorize unqualifiedly and grant permission to SLARA and its administration to contact any or all of my personal references or former or current employers to obtain information concerning my character, reputation, and/or work experience. I further authorize and unqualifiedly grant permission to SLARA whether any record of criminal conviction exists and whether there are any felony charges pending against me, including the nature of the offenses. I understand that if I am hired, this application will become part of my permanent file and that any misrepresentation, misleading or untruthful statement or omission is cause for dismissal.

    I hereby authorize and consent to a criminal history check by the State and/or Local Police, and I understand that criminal history record information will be posted provided to SLARA and its administration for the purpose of evaluating my qualifications for employment.

    “AT WILL” EMPLOYMENT

    I hereby understand and acknowledge that, unless otherwise defined by applicable law, any employment relationship with this organization is of an “at will” nature, which means that the employee may resign at any time and the employer may discharge employee at any time with or without cause. It is further understood that this “at will” employment relationship may not be changed by a written document or by conduct unless such change is specifically acknowledged in writing by an authorized executive of this organization.
