And there are no signs that you are being recovered. It's at a private university. Isn't this against the law in Alabama?

Just wondering how the Equal Rights Division operate.
I filed a claim against my former employer for Discrimination, Ageism, Retaliation, and Sex discrimination. Finally, after months of waiting for someone to take the case in the equal rights division. Initially upon receiving the letter from ERD, The employer was late on responding and requested an extension until February 28.
Black History Month go figure. They finally responded with a six-page letter going back to my performance in the year 2002, 2003, and up to 2023.
According to them my work performance was sloppy I caused lots of rework which is very untrue. I was also accused of sharing another employee's merit increase information that was left out in the open.
In their response to my allegations of the afore mentioned
They managed to send me a copy along with what they had sent to ERD. In this copy that they shared with me two of the employees write up and termination letters. I find this to be illegal, and the very thing they accuse me of doing they have also done. Their personnel information was not my concern and shouldn't have been shared with me.
I'm wondering now, do I submit a rebuttal, or should I wait for ERD to contact me to see if I have something to say regarding their response. I'm sitting here ancy waiting to respond to their lies, and I don't want to bombard the investigator, but should I wait?
I've been at this company for 23yrs, worked dedicated 6 days per week for the last 7 years, and now (Sept 2023) I can't be trusted as a quality technician. I was terminated via telephone 9/13, and my termination letter is dated 9/14 the day I was supposed to go out on FMLA for work related stress.

Should parents re-entering the workforce list their stay-at-home mom or dad experience on the resume?
I would love to hear from hiring managers and recruiters!
If you are re-entering the workforce after a career pause, it can be stressful and confusing to figure out which information to include on your resume and what to leave off.
Check out my post to see pros and cons to listing your stay-at-home parent experience, as well as a couple resume examples:

Met all the job requirements but the recruiter said I was not a match
I recently applied for a role where I met all the requirements. I added the keywords carefully and made sure to highlight them. My friend referred me and the recruiter contacted me. Instead of interviewing me and asking me my technical experience she said, "You come highly recommended from [friend] but are clearly not a fit for the role. We are looking for someone with different experience." She then listed things that were not in the job description or even related to the job description -- AT ALL. I was a bit stunned and responded that I did have technical skills like Python that were listed as a priority. She responded she needed someone to model data, not work with Python and SQL. At that point, I thought I may have been punked, not least of all because I had listed data modeling as one of my strengths and, well, Python and SQL are VERY data-related and were listed as must-haves. She also had not mentioned data modeling on the phone, even though she just described what she was looking for.
I ended up just getting off the phone and feeling a bit demoralized. But I keep recalling the conversation in my head. I wish I had not been so passive, but arguing with her seemed futile. It seems like she was just making an obligatory call because it was a referral.
But what should I have done? And what can I proactively do? I am planning on contacting my alumni office to get a resume review to make sure I am not sending out the wrong vibes but I can't get this contact out of my head.

What to do when companies request examples of your work?
I've saved samples of social media campaigns throughout my career as those were visual & created a portfolio showing some of the content and posts. What's harder is provide is writing samples.
Most of my work was company property, saved in platforms such as MailChimp, handled by junior staff members (not going to use their work) or outdated from earlier roles that it doesn't feel relevant. It seems the higher you climb in the corporate world, most of the work is done by email and presentations during meetings rather than recorded examples.
E-newsletters I didn't save as they were through work but now that the role is done, I don't have access to them. Lesson learned but I don't feel those campaigns really demonstrated my writing, it was more branding the products.
This is the second time that I've been asked to provide writing samples and I didn't hear anything back so I need to figure out a solution before a future interview. Thank you!

Does checking have or had a disability impact you negatively?
I had cancer previously but am currently cancer free. As a job seeker, when filling out the application, I have been checking yes on the application that I have or have had a disability previously. It looks like this is just some sort of designation that each company can use to say they employ a certain % of people that have had or currently have disabilities. However, I’m curious, does anyone have insight on this question. Could it be used by employers to deselect from consideration? Will this information be shared with a hiring manager within the company? Thanks!!

I've been with my company for 3 years and I LOVE my job! I've taken on many new projects and volunteered for extra duties. My review last month was very positive but the problem is the salary increase level. Last year, with also a very positive review, the increase was 2%. This year it was 2.5%. With the rate of inflation let alone my performance, this is disappointing. Our company is rather transparent about financials so I do not think this is a budgetary concern. My suggestions that my position be reviewed for a "bump" since my responsibilities are at a higher level than when I began and assumed from those at the next level up have resulted in brief conversations but not taken seriously. What coiuld be the issue and how do I move up? What is a good next step in addressing these concerns?
