In January 2014 I was wrongfully (of course) terminated from

In January 2014 I was wrongfully (of course) terminated from a job I had for five years. I have not been able to secure employment since that time. It seems that potential employers are interested in me until they do a background check. I believe that my former supervisor has accused me of some unpardonable sin that causes would-be employers to drop me like a hot potato. I want to find out what is on my background check that is preventing me from getting even part-time employment. How can I get this information?Thank you,Harla Rossi ***@******.***
