Job Application Forms

Job application forms are indispensable for the human resources department and individuals who want to be hired:

  2. Letter of Recommendation. This statement is typically drafted by the candidate’s former colleagues and mentors to highlight their positive characteristics.
  3. Recruitment Process Flowchart. Prepare a visual template that shows all the stages that comprise the process of hiring employees.
  4. Authorization to Release Employee Information. It is prepared to allow former employers of the job candidate to share their employment history with the new employer.

Employee Contracts

Here you can find legally binding contracts and agreements that stipulate the rights and responsibilities of both the employer and employee:

  1. Employment Contract. This is the main document signed by the business representative and employee to outline basic terms and conditions of future employment.
  2. FMLA Return to Work Form. Once leave you took for personal reasons is over, complete this form to warn the employer of your intention to come back to work.
  3. Last-Chance Agreement. This document serves as a warning to the employee who is close to being fired because of a serious breach of discipline;
  4. Employee Non-Disclosure Agreement. Employers give this document to employees who must keep confidential information they learn during their employment secret.
  5. Non-Compete Agreement. Fill out this template with your employee if you want to compel them not to enter into any work relations with your competitors.
  6. Telecommuting Agreement. Usually, a temporary measure, this document allows the employee to perform their job duties in the alternate workspace.
  7. Finder’s Fee Agreement. Complete this contract to determine the amount of compensation paid to the intermediary who provides the company with a new counterpart.
  8. Vacation Request Form. Employees need to compose a separate document to ask their employers for time off.
  9. Sign-On Bonus Agreement. This document outlines a one-time payment to the new employee.
  10. Time-Off Request. If you need a day or week away from your workplace, you need to draft a special request and submit it to your employer.
  11. Reference Check Form. Generally, this document includes questions you can ask when confirming the validity of references brought to you by the job candidate.
  12. Employee Background Check. Review your potential new employee’s employment and criminal history with the help of this template.
  13. Internship Agreement. Whenever you find a new intern, sign this agreement to indicate your rights and responsibilities and their involvement in your business.
