  1. Thank you Sunnyshine. I hope that this is the case. I will have to contact my lawyer to confirm it because I don't want to be dishonest with a company, but if it's going to stop me from getting another job, I may have to.
  2. I have been a truck driver for 20 years and I have an excellent driving and safety record. At my last job I was injured a couple years ago. I had 2 surgeries last year and have been off work since then. I settled a workmans comp claim a few months ago and had to resign from my job. Back in June I applied for a driving job. I was brought down to the company for an orientation, road test, and physical. I passes the road test, and I even passed the physical. I have the medical card that the doctor handed me so that is proof that I passed the physical. During the orientation i filled out all the necessary paperwork and the hiring manager that did the orientation told me that I would be starting either that weekend or that Monday at the latest. The next day he called me and told me that corporate called him and they could not hire me. It supposedly had something to do with the physical. How can this be when I have the medical card? I believe that the actual reason is because of a questionnaire that I filled out during the orientation. One of the questions on the paper asked me if I have ever filed a workmans comp case. I had to answer honestly an said yes. I believe this is the actual reason that I dod not get hired but I really have no way to prove it. The company I worked for when I got injured is known for not being real safe. At any given time, we had up to 6 employees off on medical for neck, arm, back, and shoulder injuries. I just happened to be one of the employees that had a serious enough injury to require surgeries. Is there anything that I can do to stop this from happening to me again? I want to work, I need to work, I am not an injury waiting for a place to happen. I underestand companies have to protect themselves, but who is protecting the employee from things like this?
