  • WHAT PREVIOUS EMPLOYERS CAN SAY ABOUT YOU Missouri Ohio

    I just resigned from my job for fear of being terminated or fired. The way I did may make my previous employers furious. I was called for a meeting which I feel was about terminating my employment......then instead of appearing for the meeting I faxed a letter of resignation immediately. While I was working for this health organization I made some mistakes which were recorded by my supervisor. If my prospective employer calls my supervisor is she required to furnish them with this recorded info.

    Employers are legally allowed to say anything they want, to whomever they want, about former employees, as long as what they say is true or they believe it to be true.

      Is she REQUIRED to? No.

      Is she ALLOWED to? Yes.
      The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

        Agree, a former employer can say anything that is true or is their honest opinion of
        what they believe to be true. However, they are not *required* to notify them of
        your mistakes which was your question.

          Might depend on the mistakes. Example. Bob is a school bus driver who was fired for coming to work drunk and running over a bunch of school kids. If he does the same thing again for another employer, the first employer who said nothing is in a very weak position legally.

          But it is certainly correct that 99%+ of the time it is legal for the employer to say nothing. And as stated, it is always legal for the employer to make any statement that they believed to be true at the time they made it.

            I would think that would be more of a crime than a mistake.

              I do not disagree. But if "Bob" were the one posting the question, I suspect that Bob would call it a "mistake". I had an employee who drove to work fall down drunk and he referred to it as a "mistake". As far as I know he did not kill anyone (that time) but I assumed it was just a matter of time.

              We could probably come up with different examples where Bob was not formally charged with a crime but no one in their right mind would want to retain him as an employee. Say a night nurse whose patients keep dying even if no one knows for sure why. Employers are not courts of law. They do not need to "convict" someone to fire them.

                I was just saying that your example to me would be more of a crime than a mistake.

                      Agree, we don't do that. You will have to call yourself or have a friend or
                      relative call.

                        That's above and beyond what a message board can or should do for you and not a service we provide. That's something that should only be done by a trusted friend or a reference checking service.

                            50K? I can beat that. $49,9K.
                            I'm such a cheapskate!
