We verify and expect to be given the dates of employment and title as a minimum, anything found to be false on a resume/application means immediate rejection. If found after hiring, falsification is grounds for immediate dismissal even if you have been there several years when discovered. Just not worth it.

I've seen guys walked out of training classes abruptly over this. I mean, why waste your time? Then you're back to square one anyway

Just to give you the timeline of what will happen.
Its literally like you didn't read the question.....unreal....the question was specific to a "current employer"

Many companies do background check after the new employees start their new jobs. So the so-called "current employer" will be included if they do background check (mainly start/end date)

Do not contact this employer is only for reference.
It is different from background check.

Atleast from one of my previous job, I know background check was performed after I started my new job. I was contacted by the background check company to provide them additional information.

if background searches are conducted/outsourced to a third party company they must also abide by the wishes of the employee....do not contact means do not contact..... they may utilize The Work Number if the company is a participant but under the Fair Credit Reporting Act if the employee asks that the company not be contacted directly then the new employer or third party background checking company must oblige.... of course they may choose to rescind offer if the employee resists

True, employers will need to ask permission before they conduct background check. I am afraid OP will raise a red flag if he/she tell HR not to contact certain employee (after hired) to verify hire/end date.

Anyway, I guess you do what you gotta do. HR also do what they need to do to protect the company as well.
