Seeking opinions about job application [View all]

I saw a job right near my home in my field. I live in a small city where many people know each other, and it is a red, right-to-work state.

Sooo, I thought I would give it a whirl. However, and I have applied for many, many jobs over the years...the terms of employment are weird. The terms, paraphrasing, said that they could talk to my neighbors, relatives, co-workers, etc about my character and general characteristics, my way of being. I am out on FMLA leave due to stress currently.

It also says that, if employment is offered to me, then rescinded, they can tell any future employers about my "termination" and the hospital will not be held liable for doing so. I've never seen such language before in a terms-of-employment for a job application.

Having a mental illness, a do miss a lot of work. It may call my current supervisor, who is a nut, and who slapped my hand. I posted about that here weeks ago.

I stopped the application due to a hinky feeling. Do I really want to work at a place with such terms? I have nothing to hide and have been gainfully employed since 1987- 26 years' post- Master's degree. But, still.

This has upset me, since I was thinking this would be a way to get out of my current situation. Am I being too sensitive?

I am pretty sure they will call my employer. I don't want them to know I am out on FMLA.

Any thoughts?
