Should i file a lawsuit?
I was hired at a call center...had a schedule and everything..i was supposed to start monday...but before i started they were going to do a background check...well my last employer lied and gave me a bad reference saying i had bad attendance, which is a lie and i have the managers who were below her that will write a letter saying that there was never a problem with attendance....now gap said because a employer is not willing to re-hire me they can't employ me...even though i was already technically hired...my mom wants to sue gap and my previous employer..because I turned down other offers for jobs because i thought i was working for gap. and she wants to sue the previous employer for causing me to lose out on income..and for slander(i quit the last job because the boss was extremely mean..calling me a whore and a ***** because i wasnt able to come into work on my LAST day there because I had strep throat and had a doctors note..it was just a terrible job)...any advice please?
the only thing your previous employer did wrong is he shouldn't have said because of poor attendance he isn't suppose to divulge why. They can decide to have you an non rehire status just because they don't want you to come back..
Get the letters from you manage disputing the attendance issue and if it comes up again show the letters to the next employer any good one will take that into consideration.
Think about it
your future employers will not be anxious to hire someone who has sued their past employers
If you decide to sue them make sure you can collect lots because you will find getting employment really difficult
