This certifies that I completed this application, and that all entries on it and information in it are true and complete to the best of my knowledge.

I authorize you to make such investigations and inquiries of my personal, employment, financial and other related matters as may be necessary in arriving at an employment decision. I understand that consumer reports may be requested from HireRight. These reports may include: previous employer verifications, reason for termination, accidents, driving records, workers compensation claims, etc. I further understand that such reports may contain information from federal, state or other agencies. I hereby release employers, schools, healthcare providers and other persons from all liability in responding to inquiries and releasing information in connection with my application. I further authorize The TLC Companies to release any and all information regarding myself to any of its lessees that TLC may consider assigning me to. You have the right to review information provided to us by your previous employers and have any errors in such information corrected by your previous employer as stated in section 391.23 (i) of the FMCSRs. Should you wish to review this information you must submit a written request to us, your prospective employer, as stated in section 391.23 (i) of the FMCSRs.

I authorize, per 49 CFR Part 40 of FMCSRs, the release of information from my DOT regulated drug and alcohol testing records by my previous employers to HireRight for the sole purpose of transmitting such records to The TLC Companies and its representatives/agents/clients. I authorize the release of the following information concerning DOT drug and alcohol testing violations including pre-employment tests during the past three years: (i) alcohol tests with a result of 0.04 or higher; (ii) verified positive drug tests; (iii) refusals to be tested (including verified adulterated or substituted results); (iv) other violations of DOT drug and alcohol testing regulations; (v) information obtained from previous employers of drug and alcohol rule violation(s); and (vi) documents, if any, of completion of return-to-duty process following a rule violation. I hereby authorize my worksite employer to submit copies of my current and future drug test results to the TLC Companies. This authorization shall expire if and when my worksite employer is no longer a client of the TLC Companies. The information I have authorized HireRight to review involves tests required by the DOT. If any carrier/company/school for whom I was previously employed furnishes HireRight with information concerning items (i) through (vi) above, I also authorize that carrier/company/school to release and furnish the dates of my negative drug and/or alcohol tests with results below 0.04 during the three year period and the name and phone number of any substance abuse professionals who evaluated me during the past three years.

Disclosure and Authorization - Consumer Reports


As part of your application for employment or your interest in being qualified as a contractor with The TLC Companies (the "Company"), the Company intends to obtain a consumer report and criminal background screen from consumer reporting agencies such as HireRight, Asurint, Accurate Background, and/or US Information Search. These consumer reports will be used for employment purposes within the meaning of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (the "FCRA"). To the extent you enter into an employment or contractual relationship with the Company, the Company may periodically obtain updated consumer reports and criminal background screens. Among the reports that may be procured by the Company are reports from the Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP) conducted by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (the information obtained from this program is hereinafter referred to as a "PSP Report").

As required by the FCRA, this disclosure is to inform you that a consumer report, including information as to character, general reputation, personal characteristics, and mode of living, whichever are applicable, may be procured from time to time. Such reports may contain public information concerning your driving record, safety record, workers' compensation claims, credit, bankruptcy proceedings, criminal records, etc. from federal, state and other agencies, which maintain such records. Consumer reports and background checks are conducted only in accordance with state and local laws.

Should the information received in the consumer report be the reason in whole or in part for any adverse action taken against you by the Company, you may obtain a free copy of the consumer report from the consumer reporting agency so long as the report is requested within 60 days of notification of the adverse action. You have the right to dispute the accuracy or completeness of any information contained in the consumer report furnished by the consumer reporting agency.


This signed Authorization is my authorization and consent for the Company to procure a PSP report for pre-employment screening only, consumer reports and criminal background reports from a consumer reporting agency from time to time as required by the Company for employment or contract purposes.

This authorization shall remain on file and shall serve as on-going authorization for the Company to procure consumer and criminal background reports at any time during my employment or contractual relationship and the qualification process with respect thereto. I understand that, upon termination of my employment or contract for any reason, this authorization shall be destroyed and of no further effect.

I hereby certify that I have read the foregoing and understand the contents of this Disclosure and Authorization. I also understand the remedies available to me should I disagree with the Consumer Reporting Agency with respect to the consumer report.
