I decided to reference check a former employer since they had terminated me. I wanted to get their story without a filter. I used Allison-Taylor which seemed to be professional and quick. The results were that they only gave out that I had worked there, the dates I had been there and salary. They stated that company policy precluded them from saying anything else. If they keep to this story, it seems to me that I can sweep the termination part under the rug. Is there another way that a potential employer could find out about it. I did go on unemployment since the company told me to sign up because they wouldn't contest it.

Any thoughts?

The internet is full of snoop detectives trying to eek out a living with all means. Unscrupulous or legal. The only safe thing to do on a new employment app is as the old Dragnet line went, Just the facts, nothing but the facts. I now one former colleague who failed to mention something similar and on a random file check it came up and he lost a high paying job for not giving full disclosure. Truth can make up for a sin.

The employer could go through the "backdoor", or the informal route and contact your network, etc
