Employment Application

Please read this page in its entirety, and acknowledge understanding and agree to terms below.

Note - Persons wishing to apply for employment with a local provider agency must fill out an application from that provider agency. TuscBDD applications are for TuscBDD positions only.

TO ALL APPLICANTS - (Please read carefully)
Thank you for your interest in employment with TuscBDD. TuscBDD provides a broad range of services to children and adults with developmental disabilities who live in Tuscarawas County.
When completing your application, please provide as much detail as possible and answer all questions thoroughly. Type or print clearly. If you need assistance completing the application, please advise the Personnel Department. Be sure your signature and date appear on the last page of the application and return the completed application to the Personnel Department at the above address. All applications will be kept in active status for a period of six (6) months. If you are not hired but continue to have an interest in employment after this period of time, you will need to complete a new application.
Applicants should note that the employment of individuals who have other contractual arrangements with TuscBDD or who are employed by another agency under contract with TuscBDD must be approved by the Ethics Council of the Board.

When completed applications are received by the Personnel Department, the Equal Employment Opportunity Information Sheet is immediately removed and filed for statistical purposes. When a position opening occurs, the Personnel Department reviews the active completed applications and makes them available to the Supervisors in the facility where the opening exists based upon the applicant's stated area(s) of interest and qualifications.
Because there are generally more applicants than available positions, not all applicants will receive interviews. Interviews are scheduled by the Supervisor of the program in which the opening occurs based upon the applicant's qualifications and ability to perform the essential job functions of the position, with or without reasonable accommodation. Following the initial interview, applicants may be recommended for additional interviews with other staff, Supervisors or the Superintendent. The Superintendent has sole authority to offer employment; offers of employment by other TuscBDD personnel, either expressed or implied, are nonbinding. All offers of employment are contingent upon successful completion of criminal background checks as required by Section 5126, Ohio Revised Code and checks of the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities Abuser Registry, Ohio Nurse's Aide Registry, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Exclusion List, Ohio Sex Offender and Child-Victim Offender Database, United States General Services Administration System for Award Management Database, Ohio Database of Incarcerated and Supervised Offenders, Ohio Department of Motor Vehicles Driving Abstract, and a post-offer physical examination. Employees in positions which require a CDL are subject to drug screening at the time of initial employment and on a random basis thereafter. Transportation Assistants are subject to drug screening at the time of initial employment.

For many positions, state certification, licensure, or registration requirements must be met. Be sure to enclose copies of the applicable document(s) and complete all of the application information as it relates to the position(s) for which you have applied. Applicants who do not currently hold the required credential for a given position may be eligible for a temporary credential if offered the position. Applicants accepting a position with a temporary credential must meet the course work, training, or other requirements for the renewal or upgrading of the credential in order to remain eligible for continued employment with the Board.

TuscBDD is mandated by law to conduct criminal background checks on applicants under final consideration for employment. If you are a finalist, you will be required to complete an affidavit and be fingerprinted. The background check will be completed by the Bureau of Criminal Investigation & Identification and, if applicable, the Federal Bureau of Investigation. All offers of employment are contingent upon satisfactory reports. Disclosure of a criminal record will not necessarily disqualify you for employment. Each conviction will be evaluated on its own merits with respect to time, circumstances and seriousness of the offense in relation to the job for which you are applying. The report is not subject to the Ohio Public Records Act. Upon request, you will be given a copy of the report.

I certify that I have read and understand the instructions on the front page and all other information on this application and that the answers given by me to the foregoing questions and the statements made by me are complete and true to the best of my knowledge and belief.
I understand that any false information, omissions or misrepresentations of fact called for in this application may result in the rejection of my application or immediate discharge at any time during my employment. I understand that, as a condition of initial or continued employment, I agree to such lawful examinations, medical or substance abuse, or others as may be required by TuscBDD.
I authorize TuscBDD and/or its agents, including consumer reporting bureaus, to verify any of this information by searching appropriate information and record sources. I authorize all employers (unless restricted on page 3 of this application), persons, schools, companies, law enforcement authorities and state agencies to release any information concerning my background and hereby release those parties from any liability for any damage whatsoever for issuing this information.

I grant permission to have this application and its enclosures to be duplicated and distributed to the Board's employees responsible for initial screening, interviewing and recommending applicants for employment and to employees responsible for personnel records and reports.
