Blacklisting (preventing someone from getting a job) how to win such case

Baltimore, MD |

How to obtain information that happen between prospective employer and former employer to prove blacklisting. Note that I applied for jobs in most states. Some states like Alabama has strong law to prohibit blacklisting (shall be guilty of a misdemeanor) (preventing someone from getting a job) Ala. Code §§ 13A-11-123 Indiana: Ind. Code Ann. § 22-5-3-1 As a job applicant how can I get copies of any written or verbal communications from the former employers that may affect my possibility of employment?

  1. You would have to have access to the communications
    between your ex-employer(s) and any prospective new
    employers. If you asked . . . do you think they would
    tell you? If you filed a suit you could get the information
    through "discovery." However you really just can't go
    around filing lawsuits because you "just" think two of
    these bosses "might" be "blacklisting" you.
