    What is a past employer allowed to reveal  to a possible new employer of your work history/evals.

    I believe it depends on the state laws?  I know in California and Nevada (the two states I have experience with) ...theoretically all the employer is allowed to tell them is when you started, and how long you worked there.  They MAY be able to say if you were released for cause (not too sure on that).

    Hello, I agree with  ThoughtSandwiches as to the law in CA. Here an employer is only required to inform another prospective employer as to your time of employment with them upon request.
    Any other statements as to conduct, reasons for leaving etc. must be carefully guarded. If a former employer makes any statement which may be prejudicial as to your future employment then that can be produced as evidence in court if you feel it has harmed you in anyway.
