By registering to use Jobline, Employers and Job seekers are agreeing to be bound by these Terms.
Employers are solely responsible for the, job postings, content, messages, images or other information that an Employer posts on Jobline or transmits to users of Jobline (Employer Content). Employers take sole responsibility and agree that such Employer Content will not be false, inaccurate, misleading, unlawful, offensive, or otherwise in violation of their obligations under these Terms.
Prohibited Employer Content includes, but is not limited to, Employer Content that explicitly or implicitly discriminates on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, marital status, personal appearance, sexual orientation, family responsibilities, matriculation, political affiliation, disability, source of income, or place of residence or business, or any other factor prohibited by applicable law.
In the event that ACC receives any good faith complaint about Employer Content, that information, with the identity of the complainant deleted, will be forwarded to the Employer to address. If the matter is not addressed to the satisfaction of the ACC, the Employer Content may be removed by ACC without any refund to the Employer. Good faith complaints about Employer Content may be conveyed by Job seekers to the Jobline Administrator.
Job seekers are solely responsible for the content of their resumes or other related information that they post on Jobline or otherwise communicate to potential Employers (collectively Resumes). By posting Resumes, Job seekers agree that such information will not be false, inaccurate, misleading, unlawful, offensive, or otherwise in violation of their obligations under these Terms.
Employers may use Jobline only for the purpose of posting jobs for in-house attorney positions at publicly held or private corporations, non-profit organizations, or similar entities. Employers may not use Jobline to post positions for non-attorney corporate job listings, law firm, paralegal, or any other legal and administrative job postings or for positions in the public sector.
