I came across an online application for a public school that requires job seekers to waive their rights to obtain written notice from current/ former employers who reveal information about them. Signing the application also allows the school to use any background information they find relevant against the job seeker. And the applicant cannot hold anyone liable for sharing information that results in damages to themselves, their family, or their associates. Is this kind of thing within the norm for a public school application? I've applied to a few districts, but this is the first time I've encountered this.
