I understand and agree that, if I am employed by Smiling Dog Landscapes, my employment is entirely "at will,' which means employment is not guaranteed for any definite period of time, and can be modified or terminated, with or without cause, and regardless of the date of payment of my wages and salary, and with or without prior notice at any time, at the option of either the Company or myself. I understand and agree that the Company reserves the right to establish and/or change any of the terms or conditions of any aspect of my employment at its discretion at anytime with or without notice. I understand and agree that no other oral or written agreements of any kind pertaining to the terms of my employment and/or my compensation exist outside of this Agreement, and if I believe that any such previous agreements between any the Company representative and myself have been made, I agree they are superseded by the contents of this Agreement. I understand and agree that no representative of the Company, other than the Company Owner, has any authority to enter into any other agreement or with me or provide me with any assurances relating to any aspect of my employment with the Company, except that the Owner of the Company may do so in writing.
I further agree that any change in the terms or conditions of my employment, such as a change in schedule, hours, benefits, salary or job duties will not affect the at-will relationship that exists between me and the Company.
In addition to the wages I am paid by the Company, I also agree that my continued employment and $1.00 of the wages I am paid when I first report to work will serve as sufficient consideration to bind this Agreement.
I authorize the Company to investigate my background, qualifications and/or any other information on me as it deems appropriate. I also authorize anyone the Company contacts as part of its investigation to release any information they have regarding me or my employment to the Company or its representatives. Further, I authorize the Company to release the results of any background checks conducted on me and any other information related to me or my employment as it deems appropriate. I also release all parties, including the Company, from all liability for any damage that may result from either releasing or furnishing any such information.
I further agree to take any lawful medical examination, chemical, drug or alcohol test upon request by the Company at its sole discretion as a condition of my employment, or, if I am hired, as a condition of my continued employment at any time as deemed appropriate by the Company. I agree that my refusal to take any such examinations or tests immediately upon request may be cause for my not being hired or, if I am hired, may be cause for the immediate termination of my employment. Further, I authorize the Company to release the results of these tests to whomever it deems appropriate where allowed by law.
