Re: Can a Previous Employer Contact Your Current Employer
This reminds me of a Dilbert cartoon.
The evil HR cat is called about an employee reference.
He says,"We do not give out personal references. However, I do think I would like to talk about the weather. We had a cloud here once. He was dreary and lazy and all the other clouds thought he was stupid."
Anything that is the truth, opinion or a statement THOUGHT to be true may be said without fear of suit.
Why would you believe that your right to lie on your resume would trump your former employer's right to free speech?
All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence; then success is sure.
