  1. Wouldn't that depend upon what the employer said?

  4. So, would this be more defamation of character or invasion of privacy. The employeer also stated that he was late to work on different occasions.

  5. I don't see how it's invasion of privacy. Being late for work and not working very hard are not private affairs.

    When a person asks a former employer to give a reference, then s/he has given permission for information about his/her job performance.
