They are NOT permitted to ask questions about your religious or sexual orientations. They are not permitted to ask specifics about whether or not the previous employer thinks you are ugly or a liar or whatever. If the potential employer does ask these, you can file a lawsuit. If the previous employer makes untruthful, slanderous statements about you, you can also file a lawsuit.
