I was denied reinstatement. My former position was a Police Officer I was told to reapply when the position reopened. They wuoted Admin Regsehich state I have a full year to request reinstatement. They said they were denying my requeat because they are not currently actively recruiting for Police Officers The active recruitment clause is NOT in the Admin Regs they quoted or sent to me. I was originally told when requesting reinstatement it was as simple as a phone call to the Chief to determine whether or not there were positions available
My question would be whether or not my former coworker violated HIPAA by passing on news of my pregnancy to HR when trying to determine what his tole and HR's role would be in getting me reinstated. My second question would be whether or not i would have a valid EEO complaint for discrimination
