Can I go after my company i worked for after 5 years of not being able to be hired because of them?

I was working as a shift leader with one worker, the dayshift called in and the general manager was cussing me out in front of customers and employee that showed up. I was trying to do the customer part of job when he was doing this. And I went to clockout and he said that if i clocked out and went home to never come back to work. 5 years later, i apply to new jobs from time i was fired up until today, but everyone says i am on the no hiring list. Is this legal and if not then how do i go about getting closure on this issue and off the no hiring lists?

Employers cannot give out much more information than whether or not you worked there, your last position held, and your rate of pay. Occasionally they will say if they would re-hire you or not, but even that is a... More

In the U.S. it is legal for an employer to give truthful information about you to a prospective employer if you sign an authorization release statement. I would advise you to call up the H.R. department or office manager for that company and find out why are on the no hire list with them and is there any way you can... More
