Kennebec Behavioral Health (KBH) is an equal opportunity employer dedicated to a policy of compliance with all federal, state and local laws regarding non-discrimination in employment. Applicants are considered for all positions without regard to race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, ancestry or national origin, citizenship status, age, marital status, veteran status, mental or physical disability, or the presence of a non job-related medical condition. No question on this application is intended to secure information to be used for unlawful purposes.

Consistent with the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Maine Human Rights Act (MHRA), applicants may request accommodations necessary to participate in the application process.

This application will be given every consideration; however, in accepting it, KBH makes no commitment of employment to the applicant. This application will remain active only until currently available positions to which the application relates have been filled.

As KBH treats children and other populations vulnerable to exploitation and is licensed by the Maine Department of Behavioral and Developmental Services, all prospective employees and volunteers must be screened. Therefore, KBH may, upon the applicant’s authorization, investigate the information contained in this employment applications and may request a third party agency to prepare an investigative consumer report. The purpose of the background investigation is solely to determine suitability of the candidate for employment at KBH. The applicant has the right to request that KBH completely and accurately disclose the nature and scope of the investigation requested, as well as the name and address of any outside agency responsible for preparation of the report. Such request must be made in writing to the Human Resources Department of KBH within a reasonable time after completion of the application. Any applicant who does not authorize KBH to conduct a background investigation will not be considered for employment.

It is the policy of Kennebec Behavioral Health not to employ persons who are not completely honest in their responses to information requested in this application for employment. In the event that any false or misleading statements or omissions are discovered, the application or any offer of employment will be withdrawn or an individual already employed may be terminated.

Applicants who are hired will be covered by KBH’s workers’ compensation policy. Therefore, KBH may require any candidate who is offered a position to pass a pre-employment physical and/or drug test as a condition of employment.

By hitting submit, I hereby acknowledge that I have read the foregoing disclosures and understand same.

  • Verification of Accuracy of Statements Made in Employment Application: I hereby certify that I have not knowingly withheld any information that might adversely affect my chances for employment and that the answers given by me in this application or accompanying forms are true, complete and accurate to the best of my knowledge. I further certify that I have personally completed this application. I understand that any false or misleading information or significant omissions on this application or on any documents used to secure employment shall disqualify me from further consideration for employment, or shall be justification for immediate dismissal from employment, if discovered at any point after I have been hired or offered employment.

  • Consent to Conduct Background Investigation and Release of Claims Against Providers of Employment- Related Information: I understand that any offer of employment is conditioned on a background check. I hereby authorize Kennebec Behavioral Health to contact all listed past employers and/or references and to fully investigate and verify all statements and information contained in this application and accompanying documents. I further authorize any person, school, past employer, or other organization or entity named by me to provide any information requested that may be relevant and useful in making a hiring decision. I expressly release from all liability Kennebec Behavioral Health and its representatives for obtaining and using such information to make employment decisions. I also release my current and former employers, educational institutions, and references from any and all claims, demands or liabilities that might result from providing such information.

  • Employment “At Will” Statement: I understand that this application is not an employment contract, but merely is intended to evaluate suitability for employment, and that nothing contained in the application or conveyed to me during any interview which may be granted is intended to create an employment contract, implied or explicit, between me and Kennebec Behavioral Health. In addition, I understand, acknowledge and agree that if I accept employment with Kennebec Behavioral Health, my employment is strictly voluntary and at our mutual will, which means that either I or KBH can terminate the employment relationship at any time, with or without prior notice and for any reason not prohibited by law. I also understand that no promises or representations contrary to the foregoing are binding on Kennebec Behavioral Health unless made in writing and signed jointly by the Chief Executive Officer and myself.

    If I am employed by Kennebec Behavioral Health, I will comply with all existing and future rules and regulations of the agency.

  • Consent to Conduct Pre-Employment Screening If Offered Employment: I understand that, if I receive a conditional offer of employment and prior to beginning employment, I may be requested to undergo a pre- employment alcohol and drug screen and/or a pre-employment medical examination. By signing this application, I voluntarily agree to submit to such pre-employment screening upon request. In the event that I have a disability that will affect my ability to take the test, I will so inform KBH prior to the administration of the test so that a reasonable accommodation can be made. KBH reserves the right to require medical documentation regarding the need for accommodation. I understand that failure to pass said screening will result in withdrawal of the employment offer.

  • I have not been excluded or sanctioned for participation in Federal healthcare programs, including Medicare and/or Medicaid.

  • As a licensed Mental Health Agency, certain positions are subject to completion of a comprehensive background check, as described in Maine Revised Statutes at Title 22, §§ 9051 through 9065. If you are offered a position subject to this background check and have a disqualifying offense as defined in this statute in your background, you will not be eligible to work in this position, or for this or any organization subject to this rule unless the disqualifying offense meets the criteria for a waiver pursuant to 22 M.R.S. Ch. 1691, the Maine Background Check Center act.
