In 2014, I was fired for an accident (and my state-level union hearing upheld the firing). Last October, I tried to come back as a seasonal driver, and a junior HR guy initially gave me a job offer and start date, but then the head of HR called me and said he couldn't hire me as a driver because he either couldn't or didn't want to "go against Labor" or something like that. (I don't remember his exact words.) I apparently passed the online rehire screening and the background checks and everything, though, because like I said, they gave me an offer at first. So if I move to a new state, would the HR people in the new state be bound by the same rules and refuse to hire me as a driver? Or was this just one HR guy's personal decision?
