AHHHHH USSAbyOBAMANATION. Reinstated is NOT the same as rehired. If you are reinstated it is ...the termination is rescinded and NEVER happened. According to Websters: REINSTATE: TO PUT (someone) BACK IN A JOB OR POSITION THAT HAD BEEN TAKEN AWAY.
If the termination wasRESCINDED then it means: take back, cancel, void; to end (a contract, law, agreement, or like in our case a termination) officiallly; to say offically that (the termination) is no longer valid!!!!!
