I just found out that the large corporation that i worked for last year gave me a Bad reference. Legal?
I worked for this company for 4 years. It was never a great fit for me. i ended up leaving on my own accord after they made my life miserable. I never looked back. Well I recently applied for a job at a remote, ma and pa operated lodge in AK- My dream job- I just heard from the lady who runs the place. I was told all my past employers gave me excellent recommendations with the exception of Ceridian which told her I was late all of the time, I was disrespectful- and that I quit without notice (untrue). Is that legal? How do I fight this? Any help would be appreciated. Thx ok- let me clarify- While I appreciate the opinions- does anyone know if it is legal- I will gladly go to small claims court- I am only interested in the legality- please note this is a huge corporation- thx

There are two sides to every story and perhaps you are leaving out the negatives you brought upon yourself. Why wasn't your job a fit? Why did you stay 4 years before you quit ? Why were they making your life miserable? Were you annoying them by some of your actions ? Having been in management for half of my working... More
