In terms of applying for other jobs and being turned down by them, this is unfortunately not something that you can do much about. There is no legal right to be offered or even considered the opportunity to apply for a job and the employer is free to refuse to consider your application if they wanted to.
It may often appear morally incorrect but that is all that it would be and the law does not deal with moral wrongs – as this is not an unlawful practice, then it is allowed.
The only requirement in law is that the employer’s decision is not based on discriminatory grounds. That means that it should not base its decision on factors relating to gender, race, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation, etc. If its decision is based on any of these, there will be a potential case of discrimination and the affected person can potentially take this further. However, in the absence of any discriminatory reasons, the employer will rarely be acting unlawfully and will have the general power to be selective over whom it employs, even if it this generally appears to be unfair.Nothing stops you from raising this issue with the employer, for example you have the grievance procedure available to you if you wanted to, but if that is rejected then your options are limited as the employer is not acting unlawfully.
ok thanks ben
you are welcome
