Criminal Disclosure

No applicant will be denied employment solely on the grounds of a conviction of a criminal offense. The nature of the offense, the date of the offense, the surrounding circumstances and the relevance of the offense to the position applied for may, however, be considered. A dishonest answer or an omission may result in a refusal to hire or, if hired, immediate dismissal. Piper Jaffray is not seeking information about the following convictions: (1) convictions for certain marijuana-related convictions that are more than two years old; (2) convictions that have been sealed, expunged, or eradicated; and (3) certain misdemeanor convictions for which probation has been completed or otherwise discharged and the case dismissed.

Please note: Under Philadelphia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Portland, OR and San Francisco law, an employer is prohibited from making written, pre-employment inquiries of an applicant about his or her criminal history. If you are applying for a position in Philadelphia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Portland, OR or San Francisco, please choose “I am a Philadelphia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Portland, OR or San Francisco applicant” from the drop down boxes below.

(1) Have you ever been convicted of or pled guilty or nolo contendere (“no contest”) in a domestic, foreign, or military court to any felony?

(2) Have you ever been convicted of or pled guilty or nolo contendere (“no contest”) in a domestic, foreign, or military court to a misdemeanor involving: investments or an investment-related business or any fraud, false statements or omissions, wrongful taking of property, bribery, perjury, forgery, counterfeiting, extortion, or a conspiracy to commit any of these offenses?
(3) Based upon activities that occurred while you exercised control over it, has an organization ever been convicted of or pled guilty or nolo contendere (“no contest”) in a domestic, foreign, or military court to any felony?
(4) Based upon activities that occurred while you exercised control over it, has an organization ever been convicted of or pled guilty or nolo contendere (“no contest”) in a domestic, foreign, or military court to a misdemeanor specified in (2)?

Please read the following statements, and sign where indicated to signify your understanding. If you need clarification on any statement, please ask before signing.

Drug-Free Workplace Policy Summary

Piper Jaffray recognizes that alcohol and drug abuse adversely affects job performance and safety in the workplace. We believe that a productive and safe work environment is in the best interest of our employees, our clients and our shareholders. Therefore, it is the Company’s policy to maintain a workplace free from the use and abuse of drugs and alcohol. The Company requires that all employees and applicants participate in, consent to and comply with the terms of this Policy as a condition of employment and continued employment. This statement is only a summary of the Policy. Upon request, a copy of the complete Policy, which establishes and governs the Company’s expectations in this area, will be provided to you if a conditional offer of employment has been extended.

This Policy applies to all applicants for employment and to all employees, including contract or employees of temporary employment agencies. The Policy is applicable at all company facilities and on all company premises, in company vehicles, or wherever company employees are performing company business.

Employee drug and alcohol testing may occur, except where limited by law, where there is reasonable cause that an employee is under the influence of drugs or alcohol, post-accident, return-to-duty, follow-up or rehabilitation/treatment program testing. Piper Jaffray will use only certified laboratories to conduct testing. Test results will be kept confidential and used only for business purposes.

Employees may refuse to submit to a drug and/or alcohol test; however, refusal may result in disciplinary action up to and including termination. Individuals tested may explain a positive test result on a confirmatory test or request and pay for an additional confirmatory test using the same specimen. Positive test results may result in an employee being referred for a substance abuse assessment or rehabilitation program and/or being subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination.

Fingerprinting & Bonding

I understand that as a condition of employment, I will be fingerprinted at the time of hire. This is done to comply with Rule 17f-2 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 to avoid statutory disqualification. Employment of any person with certain criminal offenses may require prior written consent from FINRA. If at any time during my employment, Piper Jaffray is unable to obtain bonding for me under its standard blanket bond, I understand my employment with Piper Jaffray may be terminated.

Proof of Eligibility For Work

I understand that if I am hired, I must be able to prove my identity and my eligibility to work in the United States using forms and documentation deemed acceptable by the Department of Homeland Security. I acknowledge that failure to do so may constitute grounds for termination.

Work Permit

If state law requires me to furnish a work permit because I am under the age of 18, I will do so no later than my first day of employment.

Employing Relatives

Because of the potential for conflicts of interest, the appearance of favoritism and other issues, Piper Jaffray reserves the right to prohibit or restrict the employment of relatives.

Employment At-Will

I understand that nothing in this application is intended to imply or create a contract for employment. I further understand that, if hired, my employment will be at-will and may be terminated by me or by Piper Jaffray at any time, with or without notice, for any reason or no reason at all, and that the terms of my employment, compensation or benefits may be changed at any time, without advance notice or my consent. I also understand that while personnel policies and procedures may necessarily change from time to time, no representative of Piper Jaffray has the authority to enter into any agreement with me which alters my status as an at-will employee or to guarantee some other benefit, unless approved in writing by the Head of Human Resources or his or her designee.
