EQUAL OPPORTUNITY EMPLOYER/AMERICAN WITH DISABILITIES ACT
It is the policy of Samaritans At Last to be an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. Our Organization adheres to and supports all laws regarding discrimination. An objective of our organization is to recruit, hire, train and promote into all job levels the most qualified applicants without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sex, age, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation, disability, veteran status, or political beliefs. All such decisions are made by utilizing objective standards based on an individual's qualifications as they relate to a particular job vacancy and to the furtherance of equal employment opportunity. Samaritans At Last is committed to providing equal opportunities to otherwise qualified individuals with disabilities, which may include providing reasonable accommodations where appropriate.
I certify that answers given herein are true and complete to the best of my knowledge. I authorize investigation of all statements contained in this application or in an interview for employment as may be necessary in arriving at an employment decision. This application for employment shall be considered active for a period of time not to exceed 3 months. Any applicant wishing to be considered for employment beyond this time period should inquire as to whether or not applications are being accepted at that time.
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 any written document or by conduct unless an authorized executive of this organization specifically acknowledges such change in writing.
In the event of employment, I understand also that false and misleading information given in my application or interview(s) may result in discharge. I understand also that I am required to abide by all rules and regulations of the Employer and in conjunction with any contractual arrangements.

I understand that I shall provide/produce the necessary PA STATE POLICE Criminal History Checks including Child Abuse Clearance within 30 days of initiation of employment. (If unreported convictions are revealed in your Pa State Police criminal history check or child abuse registry, the offer of employment will be withdrawn and, if employed, you will be separated from employment, unless you show that the report is in error. If convictions are revealed in the child abuse registry within five (5) years from the date of enrollment, your job offer of employment will be reversed.)
