I put in my two weeks and followed through with it. Is it legal to deem me ineligible for rehire?
Sometimes, "NOT eligible for rehire" is standard policy for some facilities regardless of an employee's past employment record, good or bad. It depends on your facility.
Way back in 'the ole days', when I would request references, I would specifically ASK if that was the facility's policy or NOT. If that WAS their policy, so be it. If it WASN'T, I would usually be met with a moment of silence. Translated = something negative, but not discuss-able.
The reason could have been something like not giving enough notice time, poor attendance, performance issues, quitting just after being hired & post orientation, etc. Anything.
So, you need to know if if it is the policy or not
