Recently I was an employee for a company. I gave my two week notice and went to a job that I thought was a better offer. I had been with the previous company for three years. They asked me to return several times, the managers. Well I went through a bad patch and decided that I should go ahead and return to the previous job. During the time that I was gone one of the employees informed the manager that I had walked off of my previous job. When I asked if I could have my job back the general manager told me that not right now that I have too many problems. Can they do this legaly? Do I have a discrimination suite?

Discrimination, no but defamation?

Unfortunately, on the information you have provided, there is nothing that indicates to me that there is discrimination. On the other hand, if the reason you didn't get the job back is because of what this employee said and if it is not true that you walked off a prior job, you may have a claim for defamation.
