IMPORTANT INFORMATION - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AND SIGN BELOW

I certify that the answers given to the questions and the statements made (including statements on the attached résumé, and inserted forms, if any) on this application and in the hiring process are true. I understand that a false statement, a false answer, an omission, or a misleading statement may result in a decision not to hire me, the withdrawal of any offer of employment, or the termination of my employment with La Quinta regardless of when such false, misleading, or erroneous information is discovered.

I understand that if hired, unless I am employed under a specific written contract or collective bargaining agreement, my employment with La Quinta will be "at will" and that my employment may be terminated at any time with or without cause and with or without notice. I understand that no representative of La Quinta has any authority to make any assurances, representations, or promises contrary to the "at-will" nature of my employment unless it is in writing and signed by an authorized officer of La Quinta. I understand that I may terminate my employment with or without cause and with or without notice at any time. I further agree that La Quinta reserves the right to make unilateral changes to the terms and conditions of my employment.

I authorize La Quinta and/or its agents to investigate my references and communicate with my former employers concerning my employment unless specifically stated otherwise in this application.  I authorize all individuals, schools, and employers named, and all financial institutions, law enforcement agencies, and all persons except as specifically limited on this application to provide information requested about me, and I promise I will not bring any legal claims or actions against my current or former employers due to their responses to any job reference request. 

I further understand that the completion of an application with La Quinta is a preliminary step to employment.  It does not obligate La Quinta to offer employment to me, or for me to accept employment.   I further acknowledge that if offered employment, any offer of employment may be conditional pending my successful completion of a drug screening and/or criminal background check.
