  • Reference Check Info Pennsylvania

    Does the information an employer is allowed give out during a reference check vary from company to company, or is there a law that limits what is allowed? Sorry to post so many questions, I cannot find these answers any where. Thanks again to you all.

    The law permits all companies to give out whatever information they choose, as long as it is true or represents the employer's honest and supportable belief. With very few exceptions, the only information an employer is limited in providing is any medical information they may have on you. The law is not different from company to company - the same law applies to all.

    What an employer CHOOSES to give out varies from company to company.
    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.
