Signature and false statements

Before you are hired, you must sign and certify the accuracy of the information in your application.

If you misrepresent your experience or education, or provide false or fraudulent information in or with your application, it may be grounds for not hiring you or for firing you after you begin work. Making false or fraudulent statements also may be punishable by fine or imprisonment.

All information in your resume, or any part of your application must be true and accurate. If it’s not, we won’t hire you and if you already started working, it may be grounds for firing you.
