I posted a few months ago an explanation of not being rehired by a company. Since then, I have been told by several HR Managers that I am completely eligible for rehire under their company's rehire policy. Today, I found out that my old manager intentionally checked the 'Not-Rehireable' box on my termination paperwork, so that no one would rehire me.
She recently transferred to another store, and I thought I'd have a chance at my job back. Turns out management still can't do anything, because my paperwork was done incorrectly. She has taken a personal vendetta to a malicious extreme. I did not have her reason (which she refuses to provide now) investigated for discrimination because she was transferring; I thought she would take her hatred with her. She is preventing me from getting a job in 100 stores for her own personal reasons.
How legal is this? Is HR at least obligated to change my rehireability status? I'm pretty sure I could get a job there if that paperwork had been filed according to company policy.
