How do I know if I'm on a do not hire list?

How to be removed from an employers do-not-rehire list?

Blacklist or "do not rehire" list maintained by a company

What steps can you take to remove your name off the list? Here are several approaches you may take to get your status changed and start working again!

It is possible that going back to an old job would seem to be the simplest approach to get new employment. It's possible that the firm has put your name on a list of people they won't rehire if you're having trouble being hired at a prior position. Remember that do-not-hire lists are NOT controlled by legislation, which means that corporations have freedom in how they maintain and implement do-not-hire lists.

What is meant by the term "do not rehire list"?

Many companies flag job candidates for human resources, hiring managers, and recruiters by adding them to a list of people who should not be hired again. These formerly employed individuals cannot be rehired by the firm because their names are on the "do-not-rehire" list.

Employees may be placed on a "do not rehire" list for the following reasons:

On a do-not-hire list often appear former workers who were terminated for the following reasons:

If you depart from your job without providing a two-week notice, you risk being placed on a blacklist. Some businesses are "tight" about providing at least a full 14 days notice, and giving them 13 days may result in your name being placed to their do-not-rehire list. Some organizations need a full 14 days notice in order to terminate an employee's employment.

The same regulations about attendance apply throughout the two week notice period as they do during the regular employment. During the last few days of work, if there are any instances of absences that are not explained, the employer may put your name to the list.

Failure to return corporate property on time or before the final day, or giving company property to the incorrect person, are both violations of company policy.

Problems with discipline during work, include frequent tardiness and failure to follow business policies or guidelines

Documents or processes that are missing important information, such as taking part in an exit interview

Inaccurate records or reporting for any cause, including but not limited to: notice periods, attendance / scheduling / vacation, corporate property, employee punishment and performance, and other related topics.

In the past, there are often justifiable reasons, a misunderstanding, or a failure in communication that led to the blacklisting of the individual.

How to determine whether or not you are on a do-not-rehire list at a firm

You should find out whether your name is on the employer's blacklist if you wish to have any chance of getting the job back or, in certain situations, getting a new position within the same organization. Now that you have this information, you may begin to work on altering your status and getting back to your job.

Make contact with a human resources manager at the HR department and explain your situation. HR management systems often provide a way to keep track of do-not-hire lists.

Example of a discussion to have with a former employer in order to find out whether they have you on their do-not-rehire list

"From September 2017 through August 2020, I was employed by 'Company X' for the duration of 'three years.' I really want to go back to "Company X," but it's been very difficult for me to obtain an interview there. Can you inform me whether I've been marked with a "do not rehire" designation?"

If they say yes, the next question you should ask is, "Could you kindly explain me why?"

If you answered "no," you should check both your application and résumé, and you should also make sure that you are looking for positions that are appropriate for the talents and experience you have.

How to negotiate getting your name removed from a list of people who will not be hired again

When you call the central human resources (HR) department of the organization, you need to be sure that you are dealing with a human resources manager and not a talent acquisition person or recruiting manager. It's possible that an employee working in corporate HR has access to more information, particularly on your status. Have an honest conversation with the HR professional and inquire about the options available to alter your position. Refer to the list that was just provided, be ready to clarify any misconceptions in detail, and make an effort to convey the facts in an objective manner.

Example of a discussion to have with a corporation in order to ask to be removed off their do-not-rehire list

"I am aware that I am on the firm's list of employees that are not eligible for rehire, but I am very interested in the possibility of working for the company again in the position of "third shift stocker." Is it possible that we talk about the circumstances surrounding my status? I am able to provide a rational justification for the fact that I "only gave 10 days notice before my earlier resignation." Please take into consideration updating my status so that I may participate in the interview process for the post."

It is essential to communicate in an honest and open manner. Do not point the finger at anybody else; instead, discuss just your actions and what you are aware took place.

When the person who used to be your employer is also the owner of the business.

The same guiding principles are applicable to large enterprises as they are to small and medium firms. However, rather than getting in touch with HR, you would most likely deal directly with the owner. Be forthright about what it is that you want to accomplish, and inquire as to if there is anything you can do to sway their opinion and have your name removed from the list.

Other strategies that should be excluded from a list of those not to be hired

You should submit a new application when some years have elapsed. Over the years, there may have been changes in management; thus, it may be beneficial to speak with a human resources manager about the possibility of changing your position.

You might also try submitting your application in a different region or for a position in a different department.

Request assistance from a link you have. If you have maintained a relationship with an employee at the organization, that person could be prepared to suggest you for a job that is now open. It could be helpful to get a reference from an employee who is already trustworthy.
