What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Washington State
if I am denied Employment for a legal Prejudice from another State, that i do not live in, and have Legal forgiveness in the state i do live in, do I have a claim to a background check costing me the position applied for.?
I spent 6 weeks working to get this job with Aerotek (Genie Industries) as a weld specialist. I past all my tests, and waited for 2 weeks after to get the word from the background check, when I found out that is was over an issue from 9 years ago, 2 years past the 7 year limit, Genie rejected my employment, I wrote to refute the issue and have not heard back from them since. this has affected my family of 6, I put my family's welfare on the line and went into some debt while waiting to receive news that i did not get the position, without an explanation. I have gone to Africa and back with a passport that this kind of background check would prevent if is was an active criminal issue, so how is it that I cannot get a job. except that this denial is prejudice because of my past, and is a legal discrimination for what my past has.
