Application Statement:

  Reference and Background Checks

  Stanford University conducts reference checks by phone, and background checks through a screening vendor (collectively called the “Background Investigation.”)  Background checks include searches of a credit bureau for address history, criminal databases, and court records; and in addition, depending on the nature of the position for which you are applying, a motor vehicle driving report, a verification of the highest education level you have completed, a credit report, and/or ID checks in other non-U.S. countries may be included.

  The background check searches will only be run after an applicant has received a conditional offer of employment. Moreover,   existence of a criminal record is not an automatic bar to employment. An assessment will be made about whether the conviction has a direct and adverse relationship to the job in question.  Consideration will be given to the nature of the position being sought, the specific offense, the period of time which has elapsed since the commission of the offense and completion of the sentence, and any extenuating circumstances.

  I authorize a thorough Background Investigation I agree to cooperate in the Background Investigation, to execute any consent forms required in connection with the Background Investigation, and to release from all liability and responsibility all persons or entities requesting or supplying such information in connection with the Background Investigation. I understand that employment is conditional based upon the results of the Background Investigation.

  I certify that statements made on the application, on a resume, attachments hereto, or other supplementary materials provided by me are full and complete statements of the facts. I understand that false, misleading or omitted information can result in refusal of employment or termination in cases where erroneous information is discovered after employment has begun. I understand that if I am offered employment and accept, this employment application becomes part of the terms and conditions of employment.

  I understand that employment is contingent on supplying of documents for Employment Eligibility Verification. For employees assigned to work on certain federal contracts, employment verification must be completed using the E-Verify system.

Persons with disabilities who require accommodations for interviews may direct their requests to the hiring department at the time an interview is scheduled.
