Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today. Did the manager know that the allegation was false?
Did you sign any agreement which stated that you may not reapply in the future?
Ok well from a legal point of view there is nothing to prevent you from applying and no harm can occur if you do, although obviously you may not be successful for a number of reasons. You can either apply for the job directly or alternatively you may feel you can approach the manager for an informal chat about whether it is worth you applying or whether the previous incident will affect your chances.
Legally you can be turned down for a job for any reason so long as you are not discriminated against contrary to the Equality Act. This means that the fact that you have received a previous settlement could be a reason to turn you down and you would not have recourse against the employer.
On balance I would say go for it though because if you don't ask you don't get and a long period has passed since the allegation.
if you have any further questions please do ask.
Hello is there anything further i can help with?
You have not said anything to identify yourself but once we are done I can ask for this to be private. You are doing nothing wrong in going for this job and i really wish you the best with your application.
You too, please do remember to rate my answer and all the best.
