I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.

Are they going to reinstate you in the original position when you produce the documents? What type of documents are they looking for?

No im a not gonna reinstate in that position it has been filled.he wants my original transcripts which I supplied but he said was not good enough for him...
Expert:  Lucy, Esq. replied 1 year ago.

Thank you.

There is unfortunately nothing in the law that prevents them from asking for an accurate transcript if they have reason to believe that the one you're providing is inaccurate. You can refuse to provide it - but they can fire you if you do. The reason for that is that providing false information on an employment application is ALWAYS grounds for termination. If they have reason to believe you gave false information, and you refuse to provide evidence that you didn't, then there's no law that will stop them from firing you. They don't have to keep you in the position you have the right transcripts for if the transcripts you gave them originally weren't the right ones. This is true even if it was an honest mistake, because they can't know it was an honest mistake unless you give them the right documents.

I apologize that this was probably not the Answer you were hoping to receive. However, it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I to provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information. I hope you understand.

Good luck.
