An Employment Application form is useful to an employer in the initial process of hiring a person (referred to as an applicant) that is applying for a position. This form is designed to require a job candidate to provide important information to the employer such as availability, qualifications, experience, skills, education, and prior work experience. This process will allow the employer to determine if the person seeking employment is the best possible candidate for the job.

It is important to note that a well created application will help avoid any lawsuits against the employer in the future for discriminatory hiring practices. It is essential that the application not include any questions such as marital status or race that may demonstrate or be perceived as a hiring bias.

It is customary for the applicant to sign the employment application. In the event that the applicant is hired, a copy of the employment application should be kept with other employment records.

This Employment Application Form is an easy and efficient way that allows an employer to obtain and review information regarding a potential candidate when beginning the hiring process.

These Important provisions are included in this employment application for Canada:
  • Personal Information: Identifies the applicant and provides background information;
  • Employment History: Useful for an employer to evaluate if prior work experience will help with the position;
  • Education: Provides educational background to determine if the applicant has sufficient education needed for the job;
  • Position Information: Determines applicant's willingness to perform certain job functions and help the applicant decide if the job is a good fit; and

Information
Employment Application
(Canada)

Completing a job application is important for both the employer and the employee as it is often the first communication between the parties. As such, the employee will want to be sure and put their best foot forward.  The employer will be able to use the application to weed out prospective employees and use it as a starting point to find out more information.  

It is surprising how much weight a few pages of paper can have in the hiring process. Job seekers can be confused on how they can fill out their job application and make it somehow stand out from the rest.  Conversely, what should the employer be looking for when scanning applications?

There are a few universal things that hold true to both employers and job seekers when dealing with a job application:

Is the information accurate?

It is the employers job to screen the information contained in the application. This means that every date and detail should be accurate, and applicants should assume that it will be checked and verified. Employers should verify all information on an employment application.  Generally, employers have the right to run credit checks, verify information, obtain credit payment, and criminal records.  The important thing here is that whatever the information, the employer checks should be relevant to the job being applied for.  Also, the employer must notify the applicant that they are conducting a particular inquiry and need to obtain written authorization from the applicant.

The employer may not use certain criteria to hire an employee which include sex, race, religion, age, disability, marital status and birthplace. Also, if an employer decides not to hire an employee based on the outcome of a credit check, they must notify the employee in writing and give the employee an opportunity to obtain a copy of their credit report.











Step-by-Step Instructions
Employment Application(Canada)

Policy Statement.  Every employer in Canada is required to be an equal opportunity employer.  Under the employment laws, all employers in both public and private sectors are required to provide equal access to jobs and discrimination to employment based on race, gender, ethnicity, disability or age is strictly prohibited.

Applicant should print neatly.  If the employer cannot read the responses it could preclude applicant from getting the job.

 Personal Information.  This section is self-explanatory.  Applicant should fill in name and address, drivers license number and social security number.  The social insurance number is required to work in Canada or to have access to government programs and benefits

 The applicant will fill in if they are a citizen of Canada and fill in their visa number if applicable.  

 The applicant will fill in if they have ever been convicted of a crime.  This is a question that is often left blank by applicants.  Leaving the question blank sends up a red flag to the employer that the applicant may have a criminal history. For the applicant, clearly honesty is the best policy. Employers are authorized to ask this question because the employer has the duty of due diligence in the hiring process.  This duty would be violated if the employer hired someone they knew or should have known to be potentially dangerous.  

Complete any information associated with military service if applicable.

 Employment History. The applicant should fill in all relevant information about their most recent or current employer, followed by the two previous jobs in the order of the most recent.  The employer should call each employer and verify the employment information.  Some employers are reluctant to provide any information other than salary and the dates the applicant worked for them.

 Education. Applicant should fill in the pertinent information for each school they attended, the dates, what degree was earned and their major and special













awards earned if any.  Employers may, with the applicants consent only, check the applicants educational background.

 Position Information. Applicant should fill in all pertinent information taking care to be accurate regarding their skills.  

 Signature Block.  The applicant verifies that all information in the application is true.  It is important to note here that the applicant gives the employer consent to conduct any background checks necessary regarding employment and education history.
