I need to know if I have any re-course against an employer I

I need to know if I have any re-course against an employer I interviewed with. I feel I was discriminated. I am a 60 year old Female.I submitted my resume, was contacted by the Co. Recruiter,had a phone interview with the Co. Recruiter, he said he was impressed, I met all the job requirements. He scheduled a face to face interview with one of the Dept. Managers.The interview went well, the manager told me that she would need to schedule another interview with her Manager, (The actual hiring Manager )as she would be the one to make the final decision. She would contact me within the week for a time.I was never granted an interview with the hiring manager, instead, I received a rejection letter, (I didn't have the work experience or knowledge for the position).I contacted the recruiter as I thought the letter was sent in error. I asked the recruiter for an explanation, as it was not a reason for rejection. He came back with another response (The Managers did not think you were a good fit, you would be more suited to work else where, vise versa.)Once again I contacted the Recruiter, I reminded him that I only met one Manager, not the Manager who makes the decision.I have trouble accepting the fact that I was pre-judged and dismissed without having the opportunity to meet the hiring manager as promised. They formed an opinion on my behalf, for the record, I personally thought I would fit in.Once again, I sent a final e-mail to the Recruiter requesting that he elaborate on why they thought I would not fit in , I needed to know so that I could prepare myself for future interviews.As of today, I have not received a response, the e-mail was sent 8/16/16Please advise. Thank You Ann **********************

I am from Bethlehem Pa and have questions about my past

Hi I am from Bethlehem Pa and have questions about my past employment. I am so scared of retaliation that I have not slept for 2 days. I have just got another text stating that she is consulting a lawyer, if I in anyway bring up what happened and am going to be sued. Problem is I filed for unemployment yesterday before the text. Everything that has happened to me is in my filing papers.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: PaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: This is my claim, I used a picture that was sent in group chat to prove to the boss that I don't want to work where illegal drugs are being used. I also suspect he has sabatoged a current job interview I went on. On May 29th I was bitten by a tick, was placed in the hospital on July 7th. I Informed the employer, he told me my job would be held. Have a Dr. note stating that I could not return until Aug 4th. During my employment at Dental office, was placed daily in uncomfortable situations. Extreme fits of yelling between Dr and another employee with constant use of profanity. When both were fighting I was placed in the middle of situations and treated badly. Said employee talked about her drug use on a daily basis, numerous occasions was asked if I would like to partake in drug use. When I became ill I asked if I could be laid off or fired because, my Medical Dr told me I would be out for more then 2 months, up to 3 months. Was told No, job would be held. Office did not offer any FLMA or sick pay. Before Aug 4th my job was posted on job boards, and interviews were being done in office. Was contacted by Dentist on 8/15 to see if I would be returning. I very nicely stated that I would be not returning. That the office did not meet my financial needs. I did not want to stir up trouble in the office about the situations listed above. On 8/16 I was texted a picture of my resume I had listed on Indeed, I feel it was a bulling attempt. There was no other reason for the Dentist to send me a picture of my resume, I sent back a picture of drug employee's drug problem. Upon which he showed said employee, and now have several texts berating me and asking me for an explanation. I do not feel safe in this office, working around illegal drug and fire arms being brought into the building.

I am employed in TX with a major firm, and have been consistently consulting with a major health system for four years, specifically in physician recruitment. My client has officially offered me a VP of Physician Operations and Relations, many deviations, and not in competition with my current firm. If anything my prospective CEO and employer has ensured me that we would continue to utilize my firm at the capacity we are now.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TXJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Is this automated?JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: There is a non solicitation clause in my agreement but it seems to read more as a solicitation of past clients from a perspective of working for a competitor and soliciting them for future business.

She has never been made aware of any performance issues and is highly regarded.Her boss, in the process of interviewing candidates for a similar position at a different location found two acceptable male candidates and has told my wife that he wants to put one of them into her position in November and made the offer to continue my wife's salary until Christmas.Does she have legal recourse if he does this and/or what should she expect as a severance.
