Can I sue my former employer for giving a bad reference?

Rate this Entry
If my former employer gives a bad reference that ruins my chance for finding another job, can I sue them? And how can I found out for certain if they did?

    You can sue if they lied. NOT for giving a bad reference. The point of references is to find out if your right for the job. Not just to make you look good. If you believe you have a legitimate case you can go to your court house and speak to someone there.
