In the interest of maintaining the safety and security of our customers, employees and property, Franklin Well Services, LLC will order a "consumer report" (a background report) or "investigative consumer report" on you in connection with your employment application, and if you are hired, or if you already work for the Company, may order additional background reports on you for employment purposes.
The background check company, ADP Screening and Selection Services, will prepare the background report for the Company. ADP Screening and Selection Services is located at 301 Remington Street, Fort Collins, CO, 80524, and can be reached by phone at 800-367-5933 or at their Internet Web site address www.adpselect.com.
The background report may contain information concerning your character, general reputation, personal characteristics, mode of living, and credit standing. The types of information that may be ordered include but are not limited to: Social Security number verification; criminal, public, educational and, as appropriate, driving records checks; verification of prior employment; reference, licensing and certification checks; credit reports; drug testing results; and, if applicable, worker's compensation injuries. Workers' compensation information will only be requested in compliance with federal Americans with Disabilities Act and/or any other applicable federal, state or local laws and only after a conditional job offer is made. Credit history will only be requested when permitted by law and where such information is substantially related to the duties and responsibilities of the position for which you are applying. The information may be obtained from private and public record sources, including personal interviews with your associates, friends, and neighbors. (An "investigative consumer report" is a background report that includes information from such personal interviews, except in California where that term means any background report that is not a credit report.) The nature and scope of the most common form of investigative consumer report is an investigation into your education and/or employment history conducted by ADP Screening and Selection Services or another outside organization.
You may request more information about the nature and scope of an investigative consumer report, if any, by telephoning the Company at 812-886-0777. A summary of your rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act is also being provided to you with this form.
The Fair Credit Reporting Act gives you specific rights in dealing with consumer reporting agencies.

A Summary of Your Rights
Under the Provisions of California Civil Code Section 1786.22
The Investigative Consumer Reporting Agencies Act (ICRA) is designed to promote accuracy, fairness, and privacy of information in the files of every "consumer reporting agency" (CRA). You can find the complete text of the ICRA, at the California Privacy Protection web site (http://www.privacy.ca.gov/icraa.htm). The ICRA gives you specific rights, as outlined below. You may have additional rights under federal law. You may contact a state or local consumer protection agency or a state attorney general to learn those rights.
(a) An investigative consumer reporting agency shall supply files and information required under Section 1786.10 during normal business hours and on reasonable notice.
(b) Files maintained on a consumer shall be made available for the consumer's visual inspection, as follows:
(1) In person, if he appears in person and furnishes proper identification. A copy of his file shall also be available to the consumer for a fee not to exceed the actual costs of duplication services provided.
(2) By certified mail, if he makes a written request, with proper identification, for copies to be sent to a specified addressee. Investigative consumer reporting agencies complying with requests for certified mailings under this section shall not be liable for disclosures to third parties caused by mishandling of mail after such mailings leave the investigative consumer reporting agencies.
(3) A summary of all information contained in files on a consumer and required to be provided by Section 1786.10 shall be provided by telephone, if the consumer has made a written request, with proper identification for telephone disclosure, and the toll charge, if any, for the telephone call is prepaid by or charged directly to the consumer.
(c) The term "proper identification" as used in subdivision (b) shall mean that information generally deemed sufficient to identify a person. Such information includes documents such as a valid driver's license, social security account number, military identification card, and credit cards. Only if the consumer is unable to reasonably identify himself with the information described above, may an investigative consumer reporting agency require additional information concerning the consumer's employment and personal or family history in order to verify his identity.
(d) The investigative consumer reporting agency shall provide trained personnel to explain to the consumer any information furnished him pursuant to Section 1786.10.
(e) The investigative consumer reporting agency shall provide a written explanation of any coded information contained in files maintained on a consumer. This written explanation shall be distributed whenever a file is provided to a consumer for visual inspection as required under Section 1786.22.
(f) The consumer shall be permitted to be accompanied by one other person of his choosing, who shall furnish reasonable identification. An investigative consumer reporting agency may require the consumer to furnish a written statement granting permission to the consumer reporting agency to discuss the consumer's file in such person's presence.

(1) There is a direct relationship between one or more of the previous criminal offenses and the specific license or employment sought or held by the individual; or
