    Can my employer call my references long after they have hired me?

    I have worked for the last 3 months in a group home and was just recently injured at work which has resulted in a wcb claim. I just found out that my employer has now tried to contact my references. Does this sound suspicious to anyone? And can they even do that after employing me?

    There's no law to stop them but there's no law saying you have to co-operate.  You should consult a para-legal or lawyer first.

    You can often get a consultation for 1/2 hour with a lawyer for about $100 or less.
