I understand that in connection with my application for employment by HMS Global Maritime ("Company"), an investigative report may be requested by Company that may include information as to my character, work habits, performance and experience, along with reason for termination of past employment from previous employers.

I further understand that Company may be requesting information concerning my motor vehicle operation history, civil/criminal conviction history from various states, private and insurance sources, along with other public records.

  4. I hereby release from liability and promise to hold harmless under any and all causes of legal action any agent(s) and/or employee(s) who conducts my background records search and provided information to the requestor for any statement(s), omission(s), or infringement(s) upon my current legal rights. I further release and promise to hold harmless and covenant not to sue any persons, firms, institution or agencies providing such information on the basis of their disclosures.
  5. In accordance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act and state law, I understand that I have the right to request a complete and accurate disclosure of the nature and scope of the investigation requested. Further, I am entitled to know if employment is denied because of information obtained by my prospective employer from a reporting agency. If so, I will be so advised in writing and be given the name, address and toll free telephone number of the agency, a statement that the action was based in whole or in part on information contained in the report, and written notice that I have the right, if I request (i) to obtain a free copy of the report within a specific time frame from the reporting agency (under no circumstances shall such cost exceed the actual costs of duplication), and from any other consumer reporting agency which compiles and maintains files on consumers on a nationwide basis; and, (ii) to dispute the accuracy or completeness of any information in a consumer report furnished by the reporting agency. I understand that upon my request, with reasonable notice and after furnishing proper identification, the investigative consumer reporting agency or any other agency used will provide me with investigative information in my file during normal business hours in person, upon written request by certified mail to a specified address or by telephone, as permitted by law.

Consent to Pre-Employment Physical and Drug Test



Consent to Pre-Employment Physical and Drug Test

I, in connection with my application for employment at HMS Global Maritime, (hereinafter “Company”), understand that any offer of employment will be conditional upon my taking and passing a pre-employment physical examination and drug test. I hereby voluntarily consent and agree to undergo such a pre-employment physical examination and drug test.

I understand that the pre-employment physical is solely for the purpose of evaluating my ability to perform the essential functions of the position offered me. I understand that this is not a diagnostic examination designed to detect hidden or latent diseases. I further understand that, as part of my physical examination, I am going to be subjected to a series of tests that will evaluate my capability to perform job-related tasks. I understand that this evaluation is voluntary on my part and that I may refuse to perform any test if I feel incapable of performing for any reason. I may also request that the test be stopped at any time and/or notify the tester of any discomfort that I may be experiencing. As with any testing method of this nature, there are certain inherent risks involved with the performance of this evaluation. I understand that there is some possibility I might experience some musculoskeletal injury if I exert myself beyond my known limits and abilities; however, because I will be controlling my efforts, this risk is minimal.

I understand that I will never be forced to perform any test that I do not want to perform. I understand and agree that Company and its agents shall not be liable for any injury or suffering experienced by me as a result of (1) the physical examination itself; (2) any physical or mental infirmities, disease, or conditions not detected during the course of the physical examination; or (3) any failure to direct me to a specialist for treatment.

I understand that the cost of the physical examination and drug testing will be paid for by Company. I hereby authorize the release of the results of my examination and drug testing to Company in order for Company to make a final determination on my employment. Other than for the purpose of making a determination on my employment, I understand that neither Company nor its agents will use or further disclose the information released pursuant to this authorization unless further expressly authorized by me or unless disclosure is required by law. I further understand that although Company will base its employment decisions on the results provided by the designated medical clinic administering my physical examination and/or drug test, neither Company nor its agents is in any way responsible for those results. Therefore, I understand that any dispute I may have with the results or findings of my physical examination or drug test should be made directly with the designated medical clinic that administered the examination or test. I hereby voluntarily, knowingly, and unconditionally release Company and its agents from any and all liability, actions, or claims that might arise from the administration of my examination or drug test and any results or findings derived there from.

I understand that I have a right to receive a copy of this authorization on request and that a photographic, scanned, faxed, or emailed copy of this authorization shall be as valid and effective as the original.

I agree to the statements of the authorization above. *

Applicant's Statement

I certify that the answers given herein are true and complete to the best of my knowledge. I authorize the investigation of all statements in this application and give HMS Global Maritime permission to contact schools, previous employers, references, and others and release HMS Global Maritime from any liability as a result of such contact. I understand that any false information, omission or misrepresentation of information requested or provided in connection with this application may remove me from further consideration for employment. I also understand that false information, omissions or misrepresentations at any time may be cause for termination of employment.

If accepted for employment, HMS Global Maritime will make every effort to provide steady continuous work, although the Company has no employment contracts and cannot guarantee the permanence of any position. Job tenure can be affected by many factors (business or economic conditions, changes in laws or Company policies, conformity to work rules, job performance, etc). In addition, employees may elect of their own accord to seek jobs in other fields or with other employers.

I understand that my employment with HMS Global Maritime is for no specific term and may be terminated by me or the Company with or without notice or cause at any time. I further understand that no oral promise, Company policy, custom, business practice or other procedure (including Company handbook or personnel manuals) constitutes an employment contract or modification of the at will employment relationship between me and the Company.

The contents of any employment handbook or personnel manuals, as well as other Company policies and practices are subject to change or modification by the Company, solely at its discretion, without notice. I also understand that no supervisor or other official of the Company (except its Chief Executive Officer in writing) has the authority to enter into any agreement with me or to make any agreement contrary to the foregoing.

If I accept any offered employment with HMS Global Maritime, I agree to be bound by its employment arbitration policy. This policy provides that any employment-related dispute (including discrimination and wrongful discharge claims) which cannot be resolved informally is to be submitted to binding arbitration under the auspices of the American Arbitration Association. I understand that the policy detailing the arbitration procedures to be followed is available in the personnel department if I choose to read it before commencing employment; if hired, the policy will be given to me as part of my new hire documents and I will be required to sign said document as a condition of my employment. I further acknowledge that my agreement to work for HMS Global Maritime constitutes my agreement to be bound by the policy and all other policies of the Company, even if I have not read them.

HMS Global Maritime conducts its business with the highest degree of safety and efficiency. Due to this, the Company will require me to undergo urinalysis screening for illegal drug use as well as alcohol consumption as part of my pre-placement physical examination. In addition, all employees of the Company are subject to urine, breath and/or blood testing for illegal drug use as well as alcohol consumption in accordance with Company policy and applicable law. The Company maintains qualification standards which include a requirement that an individual shall not pose a direct threat to the health or safety of other individuals in the workplace.

This Company is an equal opportunity employer. We adhere to a policy of making employment decisions without regard to race, color, age, sex, religion, national origin, disability, marital status, ancestry, genetic testing, veteran status, medical condition, pregnancy or related childbearing condition or any other characteristic protected by applicable federal, state, or local laws.
