NOTICE REGARDING BACKGROUND INVESTIGATION
Ginghamsburg Church may obtain information about you from a consumer reporting agency for volunteer purposes. Thus, you may be the subject of a “consumer report” and/or an “investigative consumer report” which many include information about your character, general reputation, personal characteristics, and/or mode of living. These reports may be obtained at anytime after receipt of your authorization and, if you are hired, throughout your employment. You have the right, upon written request made within a reasonable time after receipt of this notice, to request disclosure of the nature and scope of any investigative consumer report. The scope of this notice and authorization is all-encompassing, however, allowing Ginghamsburg Church to obtain from any outside organization all manner of consumer reports and investigative consumer reports now and, if you are hired, throughout the course of your service period to the extent permitted by law. As a result, you should carefully consider whether to exercise your right to request disclosure of the nature and scope of any investigative consumer report.
Use of date of birth is for identification purposes only. Prospective volunteers will receive consideration without discrimination because of race, creed, color, sex, age, national origin, handicap or veteran status.
