    Exclamation Possible Employment Discrimination

    I applied for a job, I met all the requirements for the job.

    When I filled out the application, it ask if I had any work related injuries. Well I do have 2 workers comp claims...1 has been settled but it still shows up as an open claim, so I listed it.

    Well I faxed the application to the company, then they (the prospective company) called me and asked me about the 2 workers comp claims I had.

    The person wanted to know; how the injuries happened, the location of the injuries, how long I was off work, and the level of disability I received.

    I gave the information to the person, then I received a call saying that they had denied my application.

    I called this person back to ask why it was denied and the person said just because I did not meet the requirements of the job...that I had met the requirements the day before for the same job.

    I then asked if it was because of the 2 workers comp claims, and the person said she was not allowed to disclose this information as it was there company policy, and this ended the conversation.

    I contacted my workers comp attorney, but he does not handle this kind of law. Also he is in another state..

    So I am trying to find out if this is worth pursuing or if I can even pursue it any further..

    I have searched the internet for lawyers, but I have only found the lawyers who are defense lawyers for corporation's, not for the employee.

    Sorry this is so long..maybe someone can help with this..

    Thanks

    Thanks for the link...I will need a lawyer to explain it to me though.

    One part I read seems to say I may have a case, but other parts seem to say I don't...I am still confused..

    See if an *employment* law attorney can help you or the EEOC. However, there is a *possibility* you were not hired for another reason.
