Lost my job due to legislation
I just recently lost what could have been a permanent position after almost 2 years of working on contract with a company (not through a temp).
I was informed that the candidate selected was part of the union with seniority, already employed elsewhere within the company and that they had a disability (not informed of what kind) which gave them priority selection due to legislation.
It being Canada, I'm sure there's a legislation somewhere that helps 'disabled' people with employment; but I could use some help in finding it, so could anyone provide a name for it?
And this might seem like a stretch, but isn't this kind of act incredibly discriminatory?
I've had no criticisms of my performance and was informed that I was a great employee, but because of this piece of legislation, I am literally back to square one on finding employment while someone that is already employed gets to literally take my job.
Thanks for any advice and looking forward to any sort of conversation.
