PRE­EMPLOYMENT/PRE­PLACEMENT ACKNOWLEDGEMENT FORM
Pre­Employment Test Only Applicants Please Read and Sign Below I HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGE that I have been informed by Kivi Bros. Trucking of the requirements to submit to a pre­employment drug and/or alcohol test, as required by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations and company policy. I understand that the DOT regulations require all prospective employees for safety­sensitive positions submit to a drug and/or alcohol test. A urine specimen will be collected at a site selected by the company and tested for drugs at a HHS/SAMHSAcertified laboratory. The laboratory results of the drug test will be reviewed, reported and maintained by the Medical Review Officer (MRO) selected by the company. I will be given an opportunity to discuss a positive laboratory test result with the MRO before the drug test is reported to the company as a verified positive. I understand that if my drug and/or alcohol test is verified/confirmed as positive, if it is determined that there has been any interference with the collection or testing process (including adulteration and/or switching specimens) or if I refuse to submit to the required pre­employment drug and/or alcohol test, I will be considered unqualified for employment in a safety­sensitive position by Kivi Bros. Trucking. I also understand that, if hired, I will be required to submit to additional drug and/or alcohol tests as required by DOT regulations and as outlined in the Company Policy and supportive material. I acknowledge that Kivi Bros. Trucking’s offer of employment is conditioned on a negative test result and I will not be allowed to perform safety­sensitive functions unless and until I pass the required pre­employment drug and/or alcohol test. If you have any questions, please discuss them with the company before signing

Important Disclosure Regarding Background Reports From The PSP Online Service

Important Disclosure Regarding Background Reports From The PSP Online Service


In connections with your application for employment with Kivi Bros. Trucking Inc. (“Prospective Employer)”, Prospective Employer, its employees, agents or contractors may obtain one or more reports regarding your driving, and safety inspection history from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).
When the application for employment is submitted in person, if the Prospective Employer uses any information it obtains from FMCSA in a decision to not hire you or to make any other adverse employment decision regarding you, the Prospective Employer will provide you with a copy of the report upon which its decision was based and a written summary of your rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act before taking any final adverse action. If any final adverse action is taken against you based upon your driving history or safety report, the Prospective Employer will notify you that the action was based in part or in whole on this report.
When the application for employment is submitted by mail, telephone, computer, or other similar means, if the Prospective Employer uses any information it obtains from FMCSA in a decision to not hire you or to make any other adverse employment or electronic notification: that adverse action has been taken based in whole or in part on information obtained from FMCSA; the name, address, and the toll free telephone number of FMCSA; that the FMCSA did not make the decision to take the adverse action and is unable to provide you the specific reasons why the adverse action was taken; and that you may, upon providing proper identification, request a free copy of the report and may dispute with the FMCSA the accuracy or completeness of any information or report. If you request a copy of a driver record from the Prospective Employer who procured the report, then, within 3 business days of receiving your request, together with proper identification, the Prospective Employer must send or provide you with a copy of your report and summary of your rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
Neither the Prospective Employer nor the FMCSA contractor supplying the crash and safety information has the capability to correct any safety data that appears to be incorrect. You may challenge the accuracy of the data by submitting a request to https://dataqs.fmcsa.dot.gov. If you challenge crash or inspection information reported by a State, FMCSA cannot change or correct this data. Your request will be forwarded by the DataQs system to the appropriate State for adjudication.
Any crash or inspection in which you were involved will display on your PSP report. Since the PSP report does not report, or assign, or imply fault, it will include all Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) crashes where you were a driver or co­driver and where those crashes were reported to the FMCSA, regardless of fault. Similarly, all inspections, with or without violations, appear on the PSP report. State citations associated with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) violations that have been adjudicated by a court of law will also appear, and remain, on a PSP report.
The Prospective Employer cannot obtain background reports from FMCSA without your authorization.
