The Court reserves the right to modify the conditions of this job announcement, or to

withdraw the announcement, any of which may occur without prior written or other notice.

In the event that a position becomes vacant in a similar classification, within a reasonable

time of the original announcement, the court may elect to select a candidate from the

applicants who responded to the original announcement without posting the position.

Only qualified applicants will be considered for this position. Employees of the U.S.

District Court serve under “Excepted Appointments” and are considered “at will”

employees (except for probation officers who may be removed for cause). Federal Civil

Service classifications or regulations do not apply; however, court employees are entitled

to substantially the same benefits as other Federal Government employees.

The initial appointment to this position is provisional pending the successful completion

of the required background checks and/or investigations. The U.S. District Court is a drugfree

work place and the applicant selected will be required to participate in a drug screening

test prior to employment.

All information provided by applicants is subject to verification and background

investigation. Applicants are advised that false statements or omission of information on

any application materials or the inability to meet the following conditions may be grounds

for non-selection, withdrawal of an offer of employment or dismissal after being employed.

Participation in the interview process will be at the applicants own expense and relocation

expenses will not be provided.

Non-citizens may be interviewed and considered for employment, but employment offers

will only be made to individuals who qualify under one of the exceptions in 8 U.S.C.

§1324b(a)(3)(B). In most cases, this means that an offer of employment cannot be made

unless the candidate is a lawful permanent resident who is seeking U.S. citizenship as

explained below. Under 8 U.S.C. §1324b(a)(3)(B), a lawful permanent resident seeking

citizenship may not apply for citizenship until he or she has been a permanent resident for

at least five years (three years if seeking naturalization as a spouse of a citizen), at which

point he or she must apply for citizenship within six months of becoming eligible, and must

complete the process within two years of applying (unless there is a delay caused by the

processors of the application). Non-citizens who have not been permanent residents for

five years will be required to execute an affidavit that they intend to apply for citizenship

when they become eligible to do so.
