my wife got hired at a Dollar Tree in Georgia worked for two days and was dismissed with the reason that the hiring manager supposedly did not know she was on the do not rehire list from several years earlier when she worked at a different store in a different town she was never told why she was on this list and the hiring manager did not do a proper background check or proper paperwork hiring her under false pretenses during her dismissal on the second day it was done quite suddenly and somewhat publicly causing her great embarrassment and all so upsetting her to such a point so where it caused her to have a bipolar episode and yes she is a diagnosed bipolar
Honestly, I just don't believe there is a case here

Without knowing all the facts, including why she was put on the list, and exactly how she was terminated, it would appear the employer made a mistake, and then corrected it. I suggest you make an appointment with an employment attorney.
This response is only general information and is not legal advice. It does not form an attorney-client relationship and should not be relied upon to take or refrain from taking any action. You should seek a qualified attorney before taking any action related to your inquiry.
This is not illegal. There is no such thing as a legal claim for "hiring without doing a background check" or "hiring under false pretenses."
Virtually all employees in the United States are employed "at will," which means the employer is free to terminate the employee for any reason, or for no reason at all. While it may seem unfair that your wife was terminated after only two days on the job, the employer was acting within its rights when it terminated her.
