Is It Legal For A Company To Have Two Employees On The Same Management Development Programme (Neither Obviously Better Than The Other) And Give One Obvious Favouritism And Subsequent Promotion? Is This At The Managers Discretion Or Are There Any Rules Governing It?
The company's answer would be that the person who you percieve as being given "obvious favouritism" is actually the better employee, for any one of numerous non-quantifiable reasons (perhaps he or she represents the company better, has better understanding of company culture, has expressed a greater variety of new ideas or insight regarding the company, products, industry, customer base, etc.).
The reality could be that he or she simply makes a better impression on the person making the decision--some would call this sucking up, others, as many books on career success have pointed out, would say that paying attention to your superiors' priorities is simply good business, and makes you stand out to them as a more valuable team member.
If neither person distinctly appears as the better candidate (i.e., numerical data pertaining to job performance are equivalent--this could be sales numbers, turnover rates among direct reports, or anything else that is measured and tracked), then the decision to promote two equally good candidates becomes based on "soft skill" perceptions that the manager has about the people. One candidate might have a better phone voice, respond to emails quicker, have hobbies that could lend themselves to higher-level management (such as golfing), be more outgoing, etc. etc. etc.
The point is, the favouritism does not come out of thin air. Maybe the person wears suits a few times a week when the standard attire in the office is shirt and slacks. Maybe they have earned the trust of management in subtle ways through the course of their employment--respond to managers' emails quickly and thoroughly; work through lunch or stay late regularly; attend more networking events; or it could be an attitude difference--perhaps the person has said or done things to make the manager think he or she would be better "management material."
In most cases, managers really do realize that they are there to do their job to the best benefit of the company they are representing and that is paying their salary. Usually, management even stands to earn bonuses based on the performance of the part of the company which is directly related to the management decisions they make. Therefore they try to hire and promote those whose later actions with the company will make them look like good decision-makers to their own superiors.
The only situation where this "favouritism" could be illegal is if the candidates are equally qualified and the one being passed over for promotion belongs to one of the protected classes for employment purposes. In the USA, you will see most companies have statements on their job applications and other HR materials stating that they are equal opportunity employers. According to the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, http://www.eeoc.gov/ , this means that they don't discriminate based on age, disability, national origin, pregnancy, race, religion, or sex.
Some categories that are NOT protected are body art, hair styles, appropriate attire, grooming, attitude, personability, salesmanship, eye contact, knowledge of current events... Employers can and do make decisions based on these factors all the time, and they are areas in which candidates might want to educate themselves further if they know that they are important to their boss or prospective employer.
If the person passed over for promotion is a woman and the person promoted is a man, the woman could allege that the decision made was discriminatory on the basis of her sex, and an investigation would follow. She would probably need to seek legal council.
Exceptions are known as "bona fide occupational qualifications" that justify otherwise prohibited discrimination. An example would be if the company said that they had to hire a male to be a men's fitting room attendant.
In conclusion, the decision to promote, while it is based somewhat on current job performance, also must include speculation on how the employee will handle the job for which he or she is being considered. Especially in the case of those hoping to be promoted to management, as in your example, the decision will be made with strong consideration given to people skills, listening skills, perceived authority, ability to carry out company policy, and existing rapport with potential direct reports. These are all areas which someone hoping to be promoted should focus their energies. Additionally, those who have recently been passed over for promotion should resist the urge to retaliate against the person who was promoted. Stay close to that person, learn his or her new job priorities, help him or her make a smooth transition by being supportive and helpful. If in fact he or she is a "favourite," he or she may well soon be in a position to advance others' careers, too.
I Was Involved In A Parking Lot Accident About A Month Ago. I Was Backed Into While I Was Trying To Park In The Parking Spot Next To The Car Backing. She Literally Did Not Look Behind Her And Cut Her Wheel Before She Started Backing Instead Of Backing Straight Out Of The Spot And Gunned It. Common Sense Tells Me If You Back Up Into Something Its Your Fault Because You Should Have Seen It, However Her Insurance Has Placed Me At Fault Because She Said I Hit Her (I Was Trying To Back Up But Only Managed To Put My Car Into Neutral Because There Wasn'T Enough Time And I Didn'T Honk Because My Reaction Was To Move Out Of The Way) I Have About $2000 Dollars Worth Of Damage To The Side Fender Of My Car (How Can I Hit Someone With The Side Of My Car?)
So I'Ve Missed A Months Worth Of Income And I Can Now Go Back To Work But Not With My Full Time Status Only Part Time Because My Employer Only Has Part Time To Offer Me Now. I Am Still Going To The Doctor And Paying Out Of Pocket For It, I'M Taking Prescriptions I Have To Pay For, And Also Physical Therapy Three Times A Week.
My Lawyer Told Me Today That It May Not Be Worth Going After. So I'M Left With A Broke Car, Medical Bills, And Lost Wages Because Someone Was Negligent And Backed Into Me? I Am Not Prepared To Let Someones Negligence Cost Me A Vehicle (Which Will Not Run Because The Radiator Is Busted),Who Knows What In Medical Costs, And My Full Time Job Status, Along With My Benefits (Health, Dental, Vision, Prescription, Life Insurances) . Has Anyone Been In This Srt Of Situation Or Can Anyone Offer Some Advice?
I Mean Really, How Can I Hit Another Vehicle With The Side Of My Car While It Is In Neutral?
If you have a good insurance company, they should have handled the situation for you. That really is the difference between good auto insurance and cheap insurance. I've been in the same situation before, and after going through all the bs (and switching to a legit insurance company), I feel a civil lawsuit is the only way to get things done anymore.. Which is sad. Good luck.

Filing To Lower Child Support Legal Advice?
Can Anyone Suggest Websites Or Resources Where I Can Do Research About The Best Way To Get Child Support Lowered? (Not Ads For Attorneys Or Books). We Live In Ca And My Husband Pays $2000/Mo In Child Support For A 15 Yr Old Daughter Who Hasn't Spoken To Him In 3 Years Due To The Mother Alienating Her. The Mother Is Far Wealthier Than Us But Pretends To Be Broke Out Of Hate. She Had Never Turned In Even One Page Of Discovery, While My Husband Has Turned In Over 500.
My Husband Works In Finance And With The Stock Market Down & Crashed, His Income The Last Few Months Is Less Than Half Of What It Used To Be (When He Was Ordered To Pay The $2000/Mo) Plus I'm Pregnant. His Current Lawyer Told Us When The Baby Is Born Child Support To His Ex Can Get Lowered, But Since It Takes Months To Get A Court Date, Can He File Now And Request A Date For After The Baby Is Born? We Can No Longer Afford To Pay An Attorney So We Have To Do It Ourselves From Now On.

I Am In A Bad Situation And Don'T Know What My Next Step Is, I Am 22 I Was 19 When I Signed A Lease-Purchase Contract With My Parents Because They Told Me To Sign It Since I Was Going To Be A Tenant There With Them, Living Under My Parents Care. I Had No Job Either. Long Story Short, We Moved In July, Then A Year And 2 Months Later We Were Evicted By The Court. Now The Landlord Is Sueing For 29,000(1 Yr Of Rent We Werent Living In Because Contract Stated 2 Years, And Back Rent My Parents Didnt Pay). Now Their Is A Judgement For 29,000 Against All 3 Of Us. I Was Not Making Payments On That House, It Was My Parents Responsibility(Even The Landlord Knew This They Were A Friend Of My Parents) But They Are Coming After Me As Well. Is There Any Way I Can Get Myself Dismissed From This Judgement
You have a judgment against you for 29K plus. It will continue to rise with time, and it will NOT go away. Re-opening a judgment if you appeared, answered and defended the action is very difficult, and must be done within a specific period of time that varies from state to state. None of the facts you stated seem to raise issues that would allow you to re-open, assuming there was any procedural ground to do so in the first place.
Now if the judgment was entered against you because you defaulted...did not answer the complaint...there is more wiggle room for you to re-open or vacate the judgment. The Court is more inclined to allow you to be heard on the issue. But again, each state has it's own rules and timeframes. If the judgment is more than six months old, it is unlikely that you will win a motion to vacate.
Bottom line is you need to get an attorney. If this judgment sits there long enough, you will not be able to get a mortgage, buy a car, sell property if you own it, and it will generally make your life miserable. You may face a garnishment or execution on your bank accounts and other property. Thirty thousand turns into MUCH more than that very quickly. You need to deal with this ASAP.
EDIT FOR ASKER'S NEW COMMENTS
You are raising issues that SHOULD have been raised at trial. Were you all defaulted for failure to appear? Did you have an attorney? Is there actually a judgment? Is the case still pending? From what you are saying, none of these facts can be particularly helpful after the judgment and after the lapse of some amount of time.
