I was terminated because my employer "had to assume it (a broken policy) was me". My former employer says that, if asked, they will tell a potential new employer that I was terminated for violating company policy. They also say they will communicate my good qualities, but I feel like the new employer is sure to ask why I am no longer at that old job. Are they allowed to give me a bad reference? Are they allowed to say I did something wrong if they do not have proof that I did anything wrong? After all, they can only "assume". Are there any statues or laws I can read to educate and protect myself on this? I did excellent work at this job for over a year and was fired over a hunch. I don't know if it's "safe" to list that job on my resume.I would not be listing them as a reference in the reference section on my trdumr. I'd only be listing them as my most recent employer.
