background check prevents employee in securing employment

Hi!

Can a previous employer provide highly detailed information of a previous employee during a background check done by current employer?
1.Salary
2. Reason for termination (e.g.AWOL, Tardiness and absenteeism)
3. Stating that employee is not eligible for rehire
4. Attach previous warnings during the employee's stay in the company

If such prevents an employee in securing a job and the previous company disagrees to stop providing all these information every time a background check is done, can the employee file a complaint against the company?

As long as the detailed information is correct, I see no problem with that.

It may be unfortunate for the employee but it is the truth.

Unless the previous employer's provided information is inaccurate and was meant to merely discredit the past employee's chances for new employment AND there is ENOUGH EVIDENCE to prove such acts, then it is presumed that the employer's information is correct and undisputed.

Legally, there is nothing we can do if the employer is telling the truth. In your end, the best thing that you can do when faced with questions regarding your previous employment IS also the truth. Own up to any mistakes you made, and make a solemn promise that you'll be better than you were before.

Good luck in your situation. You may want to try other types of work if you have already been denied continuously by employers.
