Previous Employer to Prospective Employer Information
Aug 18, 2004

By law (in Texas), what can a previous employer disclose to a prospective employer in reference to reason for termination? My understanding was they could only answer 3 questions, Did they work there? How long did they work there? and Are they eligible for re-hire? Can you please clarify for me. Thanks

Response from Ms. Gabriel

The law does not preclude a previous employer from disclosing any information, that is truthful, to a prospective employer. However, many employers choose to limit their liability (for slander, liable, giving false information, etc.) by answering only certain questions, such as the ones you listed.
