Privacy laws don't really apply to employment verification. Many US employers are reluctant to give a bad reference, because they fear they will be sued. Other companies have a policy that they give only neutral references, or only verify dates of employment (and possibly salary and/or rehire eligibility.) The only information they are LEGALLY prohibited from sharing would be your medical history. The employer generally can reveal, without liability, anything factual about your record: "Pat was fired", "Pat had three unexcused absences in the last month here." "Pat failed an apprenticeship final exam twice". If you don't want a bad record revealed, don't compile a bad record.

To avoid any issues - legal, ethical, or otherwise - a past employer should provide employment verification for previous employees for as long as the employer is legally required to maintain records on that employee, which varies depending on the type of record and local laws.
