My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: NY
I was offered a job opportunity with Sprint. I passed all the assessments, 2 interviews and during the interview was asked if I had any convictions. I told them i was convicted of an A misdemeanor sentenced to 3 years probation, but was granted a certificate of relief from disabilities during my sentence and informed her that I was on probation. The recruiter proceeded to tell me that it would not be a problem. After completing the drug screen and submitting the background check, I got a phone call about 1 week later from the same recruiter, stating that sprints legal department denied me the opportunity because I was still on "Probation", NOT because of the charge, even though i informed them that I had a certificate of relief from disabilities (which removes bars from employment).
On the background check I received in the mail, it states that I admitted to the charge. Can I sue them for denying me employment for the reason they specified?
