    That’s actually a valid use of the word according to my edition of Webster’s.

    One wonders if they even call the references today. Seems like the H.R. fools use the internet, despite so many false things on the internet. I see many lawsuits ahead when someone decides to get rid of someone at the office by making a false image or even a false facebook page.

    A landlord asked my husband and me for references. Not only did he check them, but he told us that my husband’s sister told him to tell us to give her a call! My current boss also checked references; he told me all about them because he was so impressed.

    As I understand it, labor laws limit employers to two pieces of information about a current employee. How long they worked there and if the company would re-hire them. Not sure if the same limits apply to former employers but they probably do.
    .
    My experience is that the job determines if your references are checked or not. The local Stop N Rob = no, a nuclear power plant = you better believe it and the whole scale in between.
    .
    I had a friend that worked for Sequoya Nuclear Power Plant Once, He had to show up an hour early just to make it through security. It was a contract job so when it ended he was out looking again but I’m thankful they have that level of security.
    .
    A few years later, when he was desperate for a job, he applied to work at an adult store. They turned him down saying he didn’t pass the security check. That still gets laughs whenever he tells the story.

    “As I understand it, labor laws limit employers to two pieces of information about a current employee. How long they worked there and if the company would re-hire them. Not sure if the same limits apply to former employers but they probably do. "
    -
    I don’t think so. If a job prospect lists you as a reference, he has given permission for you to respond to the questions asked.
    -
    The problems both current and past is that you might respond one of two ways to questions regarding a prospective employee.
    -
    “Wonderful worker, grab him.”
    If that happens and he messes up big time and costs the company big bucks or even kills people through incompetence, your recommendation can be held against you and your company in a lawsuit or possibly even criminal charge.
    -
    “Sorry worker, don’t hire him.”
    If that happens and he doesn’t get the job and finds out you are the reason, he can sue you for stopping him from getting the job he deserved. Be sure you can prove what you said and even then you might lose in court.
