BACKGROUND CHECK DISCLOSURE
Due to recent legislation and the nature of Huber Grading and Land Development, Inc.’s (the “Company”) work, the Company is required to conduct background checks and investigations on all new and current employees. As part of the background check and investigation process, the Company utilizes an outside organization, First Advantage Background Services, Corp. (“First Advantage”), P.O. Box 105292, Atlanta, GA 30348, 1-800-845-6004, to conduct background investigations. As part of the background check and investigation process, First Advantage, another outside organization, or the Company itself, may investigate whether you have ever been placed on a Sexual Offender Registry (“SOR”) or required to register and report for regarding your SOR for any reason and at any time.
If you have been placed on a SOR, the Company will continue to employ you if employment has been, or is, offered. However, as an employee, it is your affirmative duty to comply with all State and Federal SOR registration and reporting requirements. Failure to comply with any registration or reporting requirements is immediate grounds for termination. The Company assumes no responsibility for your failure to comply with SOR registration and reporting requirements. As a result, you should carefully police yourself, if you are required to report or register with a SOR, to make sure you have completely complied with all SOR registration and reporting requirements.
In addition, if you are subject to an SOR’s registration and reporting requirements you are prohibited by Iowa law, Iowa Code § 692A.113, from working on any project sites in which the Company is engaged with a school or school district, whether public or private. Although following completion of the background check and investigation process the Company may be aware of your SOR status, it is your affirmative duty to inform your immediate supervisor if you are unable to work on a particular job site. You, as the employee, must exercise this duty with extreme caution.
The failure to comply with this duty is grounds for immediate termination. No punitive or disciplinary action will be taken by the Company against you for properly complying with your duty not to work on a job site pursuant to your duty as a person subject to SOR registration and reporting. If you have any questions regarding this policy you should speak with your supervisor.
I, the undersigned, hereby acknowledge that as an employee, or prospective employee, of Huber Grading and Land Development, Inc., that I have read and understand the foregoing Background Check Disclosure. I further affirm that I have read and understand my duties as an employee if I happen to be subject to SOR registration and reporting, and that if I fail to comply with my requirements as a person subject to SOR registration and reporting, or fail to comply with my duty as an employee that any such failures are grounds for termination.
