Disclosures

The Bank is an equal employment opportunity employer and does not discriminate in hiring or employment on the basis of race, color, religious creed, national origin, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, genetic information, ancestry, age, disability, military or veteran status or any other category protected by federal or state law. No question on this application is intended to secure information to be used for such discrimination.

It is unlawful in Massachusetts to require or administer a lie detector test as a condition of employment or continued employment. An employer who violates this law shall be subject to criminal penalties and civil liability.

This application will be given consideration, but its receipt does not imply that you will be employed. The Bank, at its own expense, arranges for a bond for each of its employees. If your (the applicant's) background is unacceptable to a bonding company (under standards that do not discriminate on an illegal basis), it will be difficult to secure this bond, and the Bank may not offer employment to you.

Please read carefully before signing. If you have any questions regarding this statement, please ask them of an employment interviewer before signing.

Affidavit

I authorize the Bank to make inquiries regarding my work and educational history from any of my past employers and from educational institutions that I have attended. I release the Bank, as well as my past employers and educational institutions, from any and all liability or damage for requesting and/or issuing this information.

I acknowledge receipt of a separate statement that the Bank may obtain a consumer report on me for purposes of this employment application and, should I become employed by the Bank, at any time during my employment with the Bank.

I understand that if I am hired, I must provide proof of eligibility to work in the United States. If I do not provide such proof within three (3) days of my hire, I understand that the Bank may terminate my employment.

I understand that, if I am hired, my employment with the Bank will be at will and may be terminated by the Bank or me at any time and for any reason. I understand that no documents or statements of the Bank will constitute a contract of employment that in any way limits the Bank's right to terminate employment at will. I further understand that the at-will nature of my employment cannot be changed except by a formal written contract signed by both the President of the Bank and me.

Without limiting in any way the at-will status of my employment if I am hired, I understand that if any of the information I have provided on this application or any accompanying resume is untrue, the Bank will immediately discharge me.

I hereby acknowledge that I have read the above statement and understand the same.

Voluntary Self Identification Form – Veterans

1. Bridgewater Savings Bank is a Government contractor subject to the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended by the Jobs for Veterans Act of 2002, 38 U.S.C. 4212 (VEVRAA), which requires Government contractors to take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment:

(1) disabled veterans; (2) recently separated veterans; (3) active duty wartime or campaign badge veterans; and (4) Armed Forces service medal veterans. These classifications are defined as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or

A person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

An "Armed forces service medal veteran" means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.

Protected veterans may have additional rights under USERRA - the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act. In particular, if you were absent from employment in order to perform service in the uniformed service, you may be entitled to be reemployed by your employer in the position you would have obtained with reasonable certainty if not for the absence due to service. For more information, call the U.S. Department of Labor's Veterans Employment and Training Service (VETS), toll-free, at 1-866-4-USA-DOL.

2. If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed above, please indicate by checking the appropriate box below.

As a Government contractor subject to VEVRAA, we are required to submit a report to the United States Department of Labor each year identifying the number of our employees belonging to each specified "protected veteran" category. If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed above, please indicate by checking the appropriate box below.

If you are a disabled veteran it would assist us if you tell us whether there are accommodations we could make that would enable you to perform the essential functions of the job, including special equipment, changes in the physical layout of the job, changes in the way the job is customarily performed, provision of personal assistance services or other accommodations. This information will assist us in making reasonable accommodations for your disability.

3. Submission of this information is voluntary and refusal to provide it will not subject you to any adverse treatment. If you already work for Bridgewater Savings Bank, your answers will not be used against you in any way. If you are an applicant, completed forms will be maintained in a file separate from employment applications and will not be used to discriminate against or show preference for any applicant. The information provided will be used only in ways that are not inconsistent with the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended.

4. The information you submit will be kept confidential, except that (i) supervisors and managers may be informed regarding restrictions on the work or duties of disabled veterans, and regarding necessary accommodations; (ii) first aid and safety personnel may be informed, when and to the extent appropriate, if you have a condition that might require emergency treatment; and (iii) Government officials engaged in enforcing laws administered by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, or enforcing the Americans with Disabilities Act, may be informed.
