I am a licensed appraiser in California. My license allows me to train in the craft under supervision. The lending institutions do not allow trainees to do appraisals and therefore no appraisers are hiring. There does not appear to be a law on the books which would disallow the use of trainees for appraisals, it is strictly company policies. Is there a case to argue as a class of workers that this is restraint of trade? If I thought that this could be a class action case, I would begin searching to sign up what is likely thousands of trainees nationwide who are facing the same problem. Please advise.
