I used to work as a supervisor in a call center (A)for almost 3 years. Unfortunately I got sick and was advised by my doctor to rest for a month. Though I still report to work when I feel better, our company nurse/doctor kept on sending me home.
After 1 month I returned to work with a fit work from my cardiologist. During that time I also filed my resignation. It was signed and accepted by my immediate manager even though I only rendered 2 weeks notice.
6 months had passed and I received a call from my previous employer (A) that I will have an interview for the same position which I gladly accepted. I went to the HR department and informed them that I have a scheduled interview. However to my surprise, the HR supervisor apologized and informed me that they're not accepting external applicants.
On the same month, I applied for the same position with the same company (A)but on a different location and I was already scheduled for final interview but I was not able to attend it because I was already hired with a different company (B).
After working 4 months, I was benched because the account closed and unlucky got separated with the company (B).
During that time, I saw an opening with my previous employer (A) through jobstreet and applied. I got a call and was scheduled for an interview.
I went to HR and was advised that I was not eligible for rehire because I went on AWOL... when I submitted my resignation and processed my clearance and all.
Because of this, I contacted my manager and verified my status. He informed me that it should be eligible for rehire and should not be tagged as AWOL.
Please, I need your legal advice... I have done so many good things with the company and tendered my resignation..I don't deserved to be tagged as AWOL. Your advice will be very much appreciated.
