The Town of Wilbraham (the “Town”) is an Equal Opportunity Employer. The Town does not discriminate in hiring or employment on the basis of race, sex, color, handicap, national origin, military status, religion, age (as defined by law), ancestry, sexual orientation (as defined by law), genetic information and pregnancy consistent with state and federal law. No question on this form is intended to secure information to be used for such discrimination.

In processing this employment application, the Town may request that an investigative report be prepared, which may include information as to your character, general reputation, and personal characteristics, obtained through personal interviews with neighbors, friends and associates. In addition, information may be obtained from former employers and educational institutions that you have attended. A credit bureau report may be obtained as part of this application and later for purposes of promotion, reassignment or retention.

I understand that, if I’m hired, subsequent consumer reports may be requested without additional notice to me, in connection with the continuation of my employment (subject to collective bargaining agreements).
I understand that an offer for employment may be contingent on the results of a physical examination by a designated physician relative to the essential functions of the job.

I understand that any offer for employment is conditional upon satisfactory completion of the verification process as required by the Immigration Reform Act of 1986, and that the Town will hire only those individuals who are legally authorized to work in the United States and present acceptable proof of their lawful employment status and identity.
