Can it beconsidered discriminatory if a temp agency

Can it beconsidered discriminatory if a temp agency advertises for mock jurors based multiple qualifications. Also the ad states there are other qualifying factors but you need to email or callin to discuss them. When I called in the division manager recruiter said I had to be ' white' . The ad never stated they were looking for a specific focus group, however they did request you call for additional qualifications. Does this fall under discrimination, and can that agency be sued for civil rights violation?

I tarted working at an explosive plant June 2015 through a temp agency and they hired me on with the company about 3 weeks ago as a production worker. I had previously worked with another explosive company for about 10 years till they had layoffs due to oil prices going down and now they are wanting me back. My question is " The company I'm working at now had me sign a paper stating I would not work for another explosive plant when I leave them for a year and I'm wondering what are the legalities with that if I do quit and start on with my previous company"?

I am a resident of Gardena, CA. I was offered a 6 month

Hello, I am a resident of Gardena, CA. I was offered a 6 month temp /contract position through Apex on behalf of L.A. Care. After a long process of interviewing, background check, countless calls and emails, I was finally offered the position via email at $20 an hour. In order to be at my best, ***** ***** money on wardrobe, eyeglasses, etc. As long as spent time securing another daycare for my child. Today, the agency called, saying that L.A care "went over their budget, and they cannot afford to hire 3 temps." The agency assured me that it was nothing I did wrong. I cannot explain the level of public humiliation (believing that I was employed when I wasn't, how they kept sending me emails asking for additional information after I was already offered the job) and mental anguish this has caused. I want them to keep their word, to be accountable and pay me 6 months of employment at $20, plus the mental anguish this has caused. I would love to know my options. Here is a cut and paste of what they sent me (although below it says 3 months, she sent me a subsequent email correction stating 6 months). I also accepted the job offer email.Kimberly,Congratulations again on your official offer with LA Care! I have provided the position details below. You should be receiving several emails from Sterling today in regards ***** ***** background information. They would love to get you in the door this upcoming Monday 5/16 so if you could make arrangements for child care that would be great!Like I mentioned, orientation is held every Friday from 8AM-12PM so it is important to have the background completed before then. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns and I will do my best to accommodate you.· Position: Data Entry Clerk· Client: LA Care· Location: Los Angeles, CA· Contract: 3 months (may extend)· Rate: $20/hr

I went through a staffing agency and was placed on a job site.

I went through a staffing agency and was placed on a job site. I have a sex offense on my record from about 13 years ago. I am not on probation or parole and I have never once been in trouble. The staffing agency knew this up front and so did the job in which they placed me. I worked there for approx. 2.5 months as a temp worker. The management wanted me in the office to work for them on a full-time basis. They bought out my contract from the temp. agency, hired me full time as a salaried middle management employee. I passed my 90 days as a full time employee and was officially offered a position within the company with full benefits and 2 weeks paid vacation as part of my hire. I was abruptly fired yesterday without cause. I was fired by the CEO and not even my direct manager nor the HR manager knew it was going to happen until it did. I asked for a reason and I was told that I just did not fit in there and that I had rubbed a couple people the wrong way. He would not discuss it further. I feel as though someone got to him regarding my sex offender status (which is ending this November via court petition). I was upfront and was hired regardless of my record. I have exceptional references from people in management who have been there 30 plus years. I was never late and I have never once missed a day of work. I have never been written up. I have an absolute spotless work record. It was however documented that I was an outstanding employee on all of my reviews on record. Is there a tort claim here? Can I find out the real reason for this termination in a court room? As a side note, the CEO told me that he would not go against me filing for unemployment. I shook his hand and told him thank you for allowing me to work there. I left as a gentleman. Please advise.

I've just started a new job through a staffing agency. Our

I've just started a new job through a staffing agency. Our supervisor was in our training class "under cover" watching people without our knowledge. Kind of a sneaky thing but really not relevant. When we were told that he was going to be our supervisor, I asked him what his expectation was and it was only about being on time and present. I'm one of the few that have been on time...every time. I am the only white person on our team and he has taken a huge dislike to me for no reason - that I'm aware of. If I ask a valid question, he either interrupts me or basses off on me. He does this with my "sister" teammates too, but then laughs to make it look like he's "kidding". He never laughs with me. Several people have notice the hatred he has in his eyes when he looks at me, even when I'm walking away. As a matter of fact, I got another teammate to ask a question for me and his answer was polite. I expounded on the question and he went off on me. I like my new job a lot and want to stay. But I can't continue to work with this very rude, unprofessional, racist man. My question is what can I do to document his actions towards me to bring it to the attention of his superiors?

I am a temp working on prem for a large company. They are not going to bring me on as a full time employee, so I looked around. A sub-contractor to the same large company has offered me a job to train their people. Can I quit and immediately start with the sub-contrator? I live in North Carolina, by the way...

I've been employed by a temp agency past 10 months. I have

Hi- I've been employed by a temp agency for the past 10 months. I have been out sick from my assignment (which is scheduled to end in May) for the past 2 weeks. I know must seek emergency medical care for an unknown period. I know I am not protected by the FMLA because I've been employed for less than one year. My question is about preserving unemployment rights in New York.Should I request a leave of absence?If granted and I can resume my job when I can return great.If denied, is that considered voluntary resigning?If so, does a medical reason and being denied leave constitute a "compelling personal reason" to preserve eligibility for unemployment?If they terminate my employment bc I cannot work due to medical reasons, would I become eligible for unemployment once well enough to work?
