Not re-hirable, is it black balling?

I recently applied for a job at an airline that I was employed with for almost 13 years. I was informed that I was not re-hirable. I was advised by the Texas Rehabilitaion Commission that I was being black balled unless I did not give two weeks notice or there was disciplinary action. I requested a copy of my personnel file and found nothing. Do I have legal recourse? I have been turned down for several jobs that I was qualified for because of this.

Not Eligible for Rehire

I do not understand what the Texas Rehab Commission is telling you. Is it that the company says that you are not eligible for re-hire because you quit without giving two weeks' notice? Is that true? Did you quit without two weeks' notice? Were you ever written up or did you receive warnings or counselings because of performance or attendance problems? If those are the kinds of problems that are causing the company to say that you are not eligible for re-hire, then that would be legal. If there is some other reason, however, it may not be legal. Could this be retaliation against you for something you said or did while employed there? Might there be some other reason the company does not want you back as an employee? I advise that you consult with an attorney if you think there might be an ulterior motive behind your former employer's statements.
