If you were a good employee, but had a misunderstanding with your former employer you should have tried to get a Letter of Recommendation. It's tough to prove that your former employer is saying anything bad about you so there is little you can do. I don't know how long you worked before, but, if it was just a year or two then on your Resume just skip the last job if you can. I have done that. If they ask just say you took the year off. If I don't trust the former employer I will choose a Supervisor or another person with a position in that company for the next possible employer to contact.

To my knowledge, employers can ask about your attendance. They are NOT permitted to ask why you were out of the office. 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.

Can a previous employer tell a potential employer if you were fired?

Legally, they can say anything that is factual and accurate. They may tell a potential employer if you were "re-hireable." That said, there's a lot of businesses out there that don't know nor care about that, so they tend to say whatever they want to potential employers looking for references. No law prohibits a former employer from honestly reporting the fact you were fired. There is no possibility of a defamation suit for reporting a fact honestly. Whether you DESERVED to be fired is not an issue in a defamation charge, only whether you WERE fired. You were fired? I am free to tell everyone without liability.


What can you do if you expect an old employer will give a negative reference?
