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.

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.
