California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
No, unfortunatley I have nothing in writing from my supervisor promising the contract. Just her verbally telling me (along with all the other dispatchers) that they way they do things is they hire people as an hourly first and then they always get the contract because they are already trained, past probation, and self sufficent on the job.
I do, have an email from my first background investigator telling me that he disagrees with the second background investigators decision and telling me that he has done many backgrounds for hourlys to contracts and they have always been just updates, not new (second) backgrounds. He also stated that nothing in my background would've constituted me being disqualified.
No, I do not believe I am being discriminated against based on a protected characteristic (such as race, gender, national origin, ethnicity, sex, or gender) BUT do feel I was not given the equal opportunity for the contract.
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX your help and time.
No, I got nothing. :)
