    The company I work for has a "policy" of posting positions internally, but only the positions they choose too. There was a position I knew would be opening up soon, this is a newly created position within the company, I had spoken to my direct supervisor about this position one week ago and he told me he figured it would be approved for hiring in 30-60 days. Yesterday the HR dept sent out an email announcing the hiring of someone from outside the company for this position. This is the second time in 6 months that a newly created position was hired for directly outside of the company's stated policy to post all jobs internally before seeking outside applicants. I have the most seniority of anyone with the company and I am also the top paid person in my position so when I asked my direct supervisor why they chose to hire direct without posting the position he said that he thinks "hiring "Bob" was cheap and I didn't know about it until it was done, I had no options". Is it legal for the rest of employees to create policies only to adhere to them when the company chooses? Discrimination?
    What you are describing, while "unfair" is not illegal.
