Employment Application Basics

As an employer, you want to know all about a prospective employee's qualifications. Thankfully, you can use an Employment Application to gather the information you need to make hiring decisions. With knowledge in hand, you'll not only be able to find the best candidate for the job, you'll be protecting your business from a legal perspective.

An Employment Application allows employers to find out all about a prospective employee's work experience, education, and other qualifications. Once prospective new hires have filled out your Employment Application, you can look over their answers for any outstanding capabilities or red flags. The application also serves as a record in case there are any questions about the hiring process. An Employment Application may ask potential employees questions such as: the applicant's name, and the position they're seeking; the name of their referral (as well as any references); their requested salary; whether they are eligible to work in the US; their willingness to work overtime or particular shifts; whether they're able to perform essential job functions; a description of their prior employment; information about their education background and training; and a list of relevant job skills. Finally, you may want to include at-will disclaimers, depending on the laws in your state.

Use the Employment Application document if:

  • You want to determine a prospective employee's qualifications for a position.
  • You want to compare several applicants for a position.
  • You want to learn about an applicant's qualifications in preparation for an interview.
