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..
