Re: Potential employer demanding a reference from current employer

I've never had that done to me, and when you potentially don't want your bosses to know you're even thinking of leaving then it seems a pretty crap thing to have to do. Normally you give your references on paper and often the only thing they do is contact HR to check you worked at those places at those dates. You're right to object in my opinion.
