  • Not rehirable question TX

    I was hired late 2005 for a PT retail sales position. Prior to being hired, was in auto accident and receiving back rehab. Aggrevated injury during first two weeks of working and Dr. advised to discontinue this type of work at the time. Have been cleared and released from Dr. care now. Applied for similar position with same company but different location that was more convenient. Was told that other location classified me as "Not Rehirable" due to injury.
    Since injury was not sustained at workplace and currently cleared by Dr., is this legit? Is it possible that company thinks I might reaggrevate injury and pose a risk to them?
    Help!

    Sure, I guess it's possible. There's no proof either way. I can't read the employer's mind and neither can you.

    But it is up to the employer who to rehire and who not to. Since your injury has now cleared up, it was not a permanent injury and thus not covered under the ADA.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
