Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will glad to Answer your question, and the only thing I ask in return is that you leave a positive rating which will not cost you anything, Fair enough ?
You asked the following questions -
1: since I am there current oldest employee shouldn't I be given consideration going by seniority?
2 :how come no body interviewed me
3: how come the position was filed even when the posting was still open for people to apply?
4:what do I need to do..what is the process
Can I file a complaint?
1. 1: since I am there current oldest employee shouldn't I be given consideration going by seniority?
If your employer has a written policy that requires the company to give consideration first to people who are already employed by the company, then your employer can be held accountable for not giving you consideration before it considered others who were not already employed by your company. But, there is no law that requires an employer to give first priority to individuals who are already employed by the company;
2. I cannot Answer your question as to why you were not interviewed. That question can best be answered by your company's Human Resources Department;
3. Nobody has any way of knowing why the position was filled when the job was still posted as "Open". Your Human Resources who has the primary responsibility for hiring is the only department who can answer that question;
4. What you need to do at this time depends on who your company hired to fill this position. If you are older than the person who was hired to fill the position, and you are over 40 years old, then you can file a "Charge" with the Equal Employment Opportunity
") for age discrimination
. The EEOC will investigate and if they find that your employer discriminated against you for age, race, religion, then they will issue to you a "Right to Sue" letter and you can sue your employer for discrimination
. You do not have to be afraid to go to the EEOC because if your employer retaliates against in any way, for going to the EEOC to file a "Charge", then the EEOC will impose a severe penalty on your employer.
