Conditions of this Offer
This offer is subject to the completion of the attached Preplacement Health History Form, to ensure that you are physically capable of carrying out the essential duties of your position. Of course, if you choose to make us aware that you have a disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act, we would evaluate whether that disability could reasonably be accommodated in regard to those essential job functions. Please follow the instructions provided with the form to begin this process.
This offer is also subject to verification that you have the legal right to work in the United States as required by the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. Enclosed is a copy of Government Form I-9 which must be completed within three days of your start date. In addition, you will be required to present certain documentation, as listed in part two of this form, as part of the required verification process.
Kimberly-Clark takes great steps to protect from disclosure its confidential and trade secret information. In accordance with our policies, we expect that as an employee, you will protect any confidential or trade secret information you learn during your employment. In particular, this protection will require that you sign the Confidentiality, Nonsolicitation and Assignment of Business Ideas Agreement (Agreement) as a condition of your employment. A copy of that Agreement is attached. The Agreement is required of all new hires at Kimberly-Clark.
Because your position may involve access to confidential business information, the Company will perform a pre-placement background investigation. Our offer of employment is contingent upon the results of this background investigation. United States Public Law 104-208 requires we advise you that an investigative consumer report including information as to...character, general reputation, personal characteristics, and mode of living may be made. Upon written request, additional information as to the nature and scope of the report will be provided. In order to begin the process, please complete and return to Jenny Rosas the enclosed forms.
Kimberly-Clark is a drug-free work environment. As a result, an additional condition of this offer is that you must pass a pre-employment urine drug screening. This drug screening must be completed within 5 days of the date of this letter. Please see the attached instructions regarding scheduling the drug test.
As is usual, the employment relationship can be ended by you or Kimberly-Clark for any reason upon appropriate notice.
