Would the HR manager do a background check on its potential employees in areas of employment?

Those who have done HR jobs before, please help. So do they usually call up previous companies that this potential employee had worked before to confirm that these employee really work there or the reason he left that particular company tallies with what he said during his interview with the HR. Thanks.
