Can an employer blacklist you?

My current employer blacklisted me through another company's HR department [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

What recourse do I have if I know that a current employer has blacklisted me through another company's HR department?

I know by reviewing people I know don't like me at the current company and people related to HR or hiring at the other company.


What country are you in


They don't know you are blacklisted and a company can choose to decline for no reason.

Don't like multiple people at work enough to sabotage your career, but in a way that makes you want to work with them?


Stay away from social media. You led them to the intersecting circles.

If you have recourse it would be done through the legal process. You can consult an employment lawyer.


Apply elsewhere.

If you are in a locale where this happens, there is nothing you can do about it without a good chance of becoming unemployed.

If you can submit an application under the GDPR to your HR department in the EU, you will receive communications about you.

Be careful:

  1. You can withhold anything that would violate your confidentiality towards another employee (e.g. your manager).
  2. You are not obliged to keep this confidential.
