Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
Employers ask whether you were terminated in order to determine if you ever had problems with an employer, which can be a predictor of whether you will have problems with them. Unfortunately, there is no website on which you can check your work history. The best source of information is your tax returns, which if you don't have you can request from the IRS on their website. Employers are always free to contact prior employers to ask about the reason for a termination. Not all prior employers are willing to reveail this information but that is just a matter of company policy. No law prohibits them from doing so.
If I can clarify anything at all for you, please do not hesitate to ask. It is my pleasure to assist you further if necessary....
