  • Acknowledgement and Agreement

    I certify and attest that the answers given on my resume and employment application and during all interviews are true and complete to the best of my knowledge and that I have not knowingly withheld any facts or circumstances or provided misleading information. I also authorize investigation of all statements contained in this application for employment as may be necessary in arriving at an employment decision. I agree that falsification or omission of any such information or providing misleading information constitutes sufficient reason for denying me employment or for discharge from my employment.

    In consideration of my employment, I agree to conform to the rules, policies and regulations of Wings of Mackinac as they now exist or as they are hereafter modified. I further agree that my employment and compensation can be terminated, with or without cause, at any time, at the option of either Wings of Mackinac or myself. All employment is at-will. I understand that no representative of Wings of Mackinac other than its CEO has any authority to enter into any agreement for employment for any specified period of time, or to make any agreement contrary to the foregoing, and any such agreement must then be in a writing entitled “Employment Agreement” and executed by the CEO to be enforceable.

    I agree that, to the extent permitted by law, any action or suit against Wings of Mackinac or its employees, owners or agents which arises out of my employment or termination of employment, including, but not limited to, claims arising under state or federal civil rights statutes, must be brought within 180 days of the event giving rise to the claim or be forever barred. This applies to the initial charge filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission; provided that thereafter I am permitted to pursue litigation, if at all, as provided in the Commission’s “Right to Sue” letter. I waive any longer, but not shorter, limitations periods to the contrary.

    Under Michigan Law only, I understand that if I am unable to perform the duties outlined on the job description for the position I seek (or later hold) without an accommodation, I must notify Wings of Mackinac of my special need in writing within 182 days of the time I know or should have known of my need.

    I understand that, after receiving an offer of employment, Wings of Mackinac may require, if it so chooses, the successful completion of physical or a drug test and/or a blood alcohol test as a condition of employment. By submitting this Application for Employment, I hereby consent to such tests, at Wings of Mackinac’ sole discretion and agree that testing positive for drugs/alcohol constitutes sufficient reason for withdrawing the offer of employment or terminating my employment and that any offer of employment may be withdrawn if the physical indicates that I am unable to perform the essential functions of my position with or without a reasonable accommodation.

    I authorize Wings of Mackinac to contact listed references, former employers, and any others who may have information concerning my application or qualification for employment. I also authorize a criminal background check. I release Wings of Mackinac, its employees, owners and agents, and those who supplied Wings of Mackinac with information from any liability or damages which may result from furnishing the requested information including my failure to be hired for the position for which I am applying. I agree that Wings of Mackinac shall have the right to terminate my employment based on any criminal record I may have that it deems relevant.

    If employed, I agree I shall not engage in any outside activity which would involve a material conflict of interest with, or which could affect adversely, Wings of Mackinac. Whether I am deemed to have violated this term is at the sole discretion of Wings of Mackinac. If employed, I agree to hold in strictest confidence any information I obtain concerning Wings of Mackinac, its business operations, customers, and employees/agents and further agree to execute Wings of Mackinac’ non-compete and confidentiality agreements if required to do so.
