Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Thank you Adam for your prompt reply! This employer did not even contact my references before continuing with the employment process. I answered "yes" when asked about contacting previously employers, but I do not know if they did this or not. I know from Google searches that they usually do not contact previously employers and that it would be a red flag if I said they could not. My in-house recruiter is a VERY busy man. I have not stopped my disability repeal yet. If I do this now, do you think it will show if they investigate that deeply? Thanks!
I have one more question and will be happy to rate your answer. If they discover that I have applied, can they legally deny me employment? My doctors suggested I apply for disability when my prognosis was questionable. Fortunately, my health is no longer an issue and I look forward to returning to work. Thank you for your help. Peace of mind is priceless!
I have a choice to rate or reply, but I wanted to reply to personally thank you for information that is supremely important to me. I just hope my busy recruiter doesn't decide to dig too much. As I mentioned, they didn't even contact my references. They know from my interview that I have the experience and desire to be an asset to the company. Upon your reply I will gladly rate your excellent assistance! Have a great holiday weekend! I know I will:D
