I feel that former employer might have slandered my reputation.

That's so weird...why would they have done this? Did you leave on bad terms?

I have no idea. But in the process of speaking with an attorney to see if I have a legal way of getting the information.

The past employer is legally restricted in what they can share but they ARE permitted to say you’re ineligible for rehire. My guess is there.

But were you able to get ahold of the reason for the rescinded request? Gather it as evidence and try again to see whether it is indeed harassment or other reasons. You may file an action of it's the former.

No. It was blacked out. The federal government is weird like that. I’m in the process of speaking with an attorney

Stay calm, file a FOIA request and see what turns out. Ask anyone about this if you can at your previous company.

I did file that request but all the information received was blacked out like it was some secret government document.
