Applicant Certification

The information provided by me on this application is true and complete. I have not knowingly falsified or withheld any facts which, if disclosed, would adversely affect my application. I understand that any such falsification or withholding, no matter when discovered, may disqualify me from further consideration as a candidate for employment with Progressive or be grounds for termination if I am employed.

I hereby authorize Progressive or its agents to verify all statements contained in this application and/or resume to the extent permitted by federal, state or local law. (Federal law and some state law requires a separate disclosure and consent form when obtaining consumer credit reports.) To the extent permitted by federal, state or local law, I release all parties from any liability arising out of this provision and the use of such information.

If I become employed by Progressive, I understand that I will be bound by Progressive's Code of Conduct and all of its policies and procedures. If I become employed by Progressive, I pledge to preserve in confidence Progressive's confidential and proprietary information concerning the business of Progressive which I obtain through my employment with Progressive and will not disclose any such information to third parties without the prior written consent of Progressive. I understand that any job offer is subject to Progressive obtaining favorable references from prior employers and my ability to establish employment eligibility under the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986.

I have read, understand and agree to the above conditions of employment. I acknowledge that no promises regarding employment have been made to me and I understand that no such promise is binding upon Progressive unless made in writing by a duly-authorized officer of Progressive. If I become employed by Progressive, I understand that I will be an employee at-will, which means that I have the right to terminate my employment at any time, and that Progressive has the same right to terminate my employment, with or without cause, and with or without notice, at any time.

I agree that any claims or lawsuits relating to my service with Progressive must be filed no more than six (6) months after the date of the employment action that is the subject of the claim or lawsuit. I waive any statute of limitations to the contrary.
