We are currently hiring two full time employees with 40 hour work weeks. The positions are Clerical Aid I and Clerical Aid II. The Clerical Aid II posting has more responsibilities than the Clerical Aid I position and after a 2 month review the Aid II is promised a raise. Our new manager had HR post the Clerical Aid II job online (posted on the company site. Job may have also been posted on a third party platform) and we immediately discovered it was posted in error as a part time job with 20-40 hour work weeks. With no delay we contacted the manager to get this fixed. The manager gave a range of excuses why it could not be changed: we don't need to change the posting because we can tell the applicants at the interviews about the errors, maybe we can make the job part time by promising the interviewees they will get an extended break of several weeks to months off from work in the Spring (this is NOT practicable), HR refused to correct the errors.
Aren't job postings considered legal contracts?
Ultimately we filled the Clerical Aid II position and verbally told the applicant about the job posting errors.
Several weeks later the new manager posted the Clerical Aid I position and that posting is even worse. They posted the Clerical Aid II position again and with all the errors that go with it! We immediately informed the manager. The manager said he would "take care of it." It has been three weeks and the job posting is still wrong. We are currently interviewing people and, at the interviews, telling them all the errors in the posting. We have gone repeatedly to the manager for the past three weeks and he keeps saying "I'll take care of it." Yesterday he said he just got done talking to HR and they refused to correct the posting. We suspect this manager is lying and this is not a stretch as he is a notorious liar. Every single employee within the department has caught him at many lies.
What should we do? We work for a county elections office in the United States. I don't want to reveal the state (I don't want this question somehow getting back to my manager) but I am in a "right to work state." All of our communications have been with email so we have paper records of everything.
