What Not To Do When A Company's Reference Policy is Not Honored
This article is written by Jeff Shane, of Allison & Taylor Reference Checking. While references made that are less than accurate are painful, they can be difficult establishing in a Court of Law. The same is true with Discrimination cases and an apparent new approach of requesting Background Check information then not moving forward once the applicant's age has been confirmed. Not all companies "play dirty" and the outcome, whether you are vindicated or not, often leave the victim damaged again by seeking damages. If you feel you have been treated in an illegal matter, discuss it only with qualified professionals first as evidence sometimes gets lost.
Fortunately most companies are honest and do not seek the risk of such exposure and a public judgement against them. This is offered only as information from a participant in this field. No requests for payment have been made to this person or company and no funds or items of value will be accepted; this should not be seen as an endorsement or promotion.
Unfortunately some applicants/candidates fabricate their references by using close friends and/or family to take on a different name and know what story and dates they need to repeat.
This is one reason references are on the decline. An online phone number check stops this.
This link is an article related to the above but discusses company policy and process as an additional insight into this matter.

WON'T HIRE THE UNEMPLOYED
Good and talented people are not exempt from companies being acquired, facing tough
economic downturns, have deficient or weak leadership, or see their goods or services no longer in demand, or many other factors that can bring involuntary separations. Many to most factors for unemployment have no relationship to an employee's skills, performance or attitude.
Ask yourself, "Is this a manager or company I would feel proud to be involved with?" If not, why are you still thinking about them? Jobs can be tough to get; bad jobs are plentiful and often more damaging to your career. This is why networking is critical to learn the inside scoop.
Never respond to such statements; be polite and walk out knowing you escaped a future nightmare that could haunt you for years to come. Hostile environments are not worthy of you.
