Does anyone know the legality of this?

I work for a company that is an LLC and has added a INC. There is a job opening under the INC that I would like to apply for. I have all of the qualifications and would be the perfect fit. I heard someone say that I can't legally work for the INC because I have worked for the LLC. Is there any truth in that? It doesn't seem right to me.

  • Unless the company itself has instituted that policy, I don't know of any legal reasons why you couldn't do it. If you couldn't work for an INC after working for an LLC, it would be well known because people would have to know when they're job hunting.

    I think whoever told you this is either misinformed, didn't mention it's a company policy rather than a law, or is trying to keep you from applying for the other job.

  • An LLC is a limited liability company. Inc. is for incorporation. There should be no reason. Call your local labor department to find out what the laws say in your state.

  • That doesn't sound right. Is there anyone at the company you can ask?

  • No two separate jobs but it is always best to check it out with someone on the other side ( on the QT) just to be sure.

  • I'm not sure who I can ask. I've asked a few people and they said that I can't. I asked 1 of the supervisors today and he is going to check with the CEO (of course I can't ask the CEO as I'm not upper management)
