I was recently let go from a bank. They told us they were closing the bank due to lack of revenue and customers. However, I feel it is going to a on going issue with money missing but they did not have exact proof on the original person they assumed did it. As of yesterday my former employee pulled my credit report. Can they do that?

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 ***@******.***
