Previous Employers

This thread is over 365 days old and has been closed.

Please post your question as a New Topic by clicking this link and choosing which forum to post in.

For almost everything you are going to want to post in VA Claims Research.

If this is your first time posting. Take a moment and read our Guidelines. It will inform you of what is and isn't acceptable and tips on getting your questions answered. 


Remember, everyone who comes here is a volunteer. At one point, they went to the forums looking for information. They liked it here and decided to stay and help other veterans. They share their personal experience, providing links to the law and reference materials and support because working on your claim can be exhausting and beyond frustrating. 


This thread may still provide value to you and is worth at least skimming through the responses to see if any of them answer your question. Knowledge Is Power, and there is a lot of knowledge in older threads.




I noticed on my claim that they have sent out some form to my previous employers. One filled it out and gave ti to me to submit, which I did. The other employer which I left on bad terms with is also knowledgeable about the VA process and have stated before in person the last time they got the form that they were going to fill it out to get me denied. Any way to have the VA not send them a form to fill out? Kind of concerned that they will do anything to screw me over since I won a EOE suit against them for purposefully not promoting veterans with disabilities.

If you have already won an EEO suit against them, especially when your EEO complaint involved veterans with disabilities, they would be foolish to try to screw you over. JMO

The Company don't have the balls to pull that crap a second time, I assure you that bud. It will only hurt them in the future. Don't worry for now and just wait and see what happens. God Bless and good luck.

Yeah I had them in writing say that until my PTSD gets better I would not advance in the company. That's when the fun started and was basically forced to quit for my sanity.

Those employers like that Suck the big one. I worked for the Coast Guard (civilian) and they were hiring the non-veteran sons of previous employees (coast guard brats) over disabled veterans. I'm glad you're out of that place Icurle, I can totally relate.

When my deceased husband filed an EEOC case against VA, (they had discriminated against him and 12 other Part Time vets (most SC disabled)employed with same VA on the job experience as well, for the same full time position,but instead hired a civilian, non disabled person with NO experience in the type of position, because she knew their head cook as I found out when under FOIA the VA sent me every job application, SSA numbers and names etc violating privacy rights) , and suddenly his satisfactory performance appraisals, were combatted with negative testimony from some of his co workers to the EEOC.

His supervisor said he would act crazy on the job and others said he made many errors reading menus and diet cards.

(But this was never noted in his performance appraisals.

(This also came under my FOIA to the EEOC)

That EEOC crap became very instrumental in his 100% P & T PTSD award as well as even in my AO DMII death claim.

This was not the ADA EEOC case he won.

During the EEOC deposition, (I got a copy of it on tape via EEOC FOIA )in spite of all the stuff I had gone over with him, to support his case, he messed up on one question...the most important one of all.

I winced as the EEOC person then leaned back and broadly smiled. I knew he had lost the case with his statement. Unfortunately, for all of their bitching about the job discrimination, not a single other adversely affected vet would file an EEOC case as well.

Still, documentation can work against the VA as well as for them, depending on how it is used.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.


    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.


    You can read the forums without registering.


    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.


    Leading to:


    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.


    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?


    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
