Can a company prevent rehire

New p2puser

Had to leave Amazon after being there for several years due to a bad manager who put me on PIP. I found later that I cannot rejoin Amazon. Is it legal? It's been several years now. But I just feel bad that because I didn't persist then a big door is shut off for me forever. Any suggestions or recourse

    Why wouldn't it be legal? Employment is at will.

      Yes: discrimination against bad employees...

      It's as much discrimination as firing someone for poor performance is

      Discrimination is only unlawful when a protected classification is used. Bad employee is not a protected class.

      Can a company be challenged on the proof of performance. Or just a manager word is sufficient

      A manager’s word is sufficient. Obviously, your performance was bad for that manager.

    You are fucked. I have been blacklisted in 2014 and even when a recruiter reaches out, as soon as I tell them I have been an employee they all ghost me. Amazon blacklist is pretty serious.

    Your blacklisted but impossible to prove as HR will never give you a reason!

  • Yes a company is unlikely to rehire a terminated employee. At EY it was policy not to. Why would you want to work for a company that you didn’t excel at? Find another -

    OP, how did you know that you are blacklisted? Can recruiters check this?
