Thank you for trusting your question to JA today. I’m happy to be of assistance.
Unfortunately, unless you can demonstrate an illegal action by someone, it is very difficult to get them to change their practice. Employers have a very high level of discretion when it comes to hiring and firing practices. Unions have set up and have been successful, through collective bargaining, to obtain contracts which protect them from similar actions by employers, though not complete protection. The federal and state governments have gotten involved, in smaller ways, making it illegal to terminate for certain causes, like discrimination due to race, religion, gender, age, disability, recent FMLA use, worker's compensation use, OSHA complaints or wage and hour complaints.
Regrettably, unless the situation involves a person contract, a collective bargaining contract or an issue of discrimination, there is simply no way to compel an employer to change their hiring and termination practices. You can certainly appeal to their sense of fairness, but that is unlikely to work in this case and anyone with a sense of fairness wouldn't engage in this practice in the first place.
I do wish I could tell you differently here, but the law ties my hands.
