I hope this is in the correct section.
I have had issues with a particular agency that wants me to sit to be fully cleared to work with them. They won’t accept my crossover from anyone else in the IC, even at the SCI level. I’m fine with that, but my program manager said he was told that I “pissed off” someone at that agency by failing to show for a scheduled polygraph. As you can guess, I have a few issues with this:
I have never failed to show for anything. Period. Ever. Doesn’t matter what it is.
My PM has no legal right to know anything about my clearance. This is supposed to be privileged information known only to the customer and my corporate or program FSO’s.
My PM has no right or permission to tell anyone on the project this.
I was let go from the company on 2/28 because it would take 12-14 months for the customer to clear me from ground one. Topping it all off, my last agency had started a BI on me that was still ongoing even after I was debriefed to take my last job. Now I’m screwed because of the BI and it’s taking forever for me to start a job.
Do I have any legal recourse with my former company for allowing this rumor to spread and for my PM to be spreading it? Are there clearance-specific lawyers out there? Thanks.
