Re: Potential employer demanding a reference from current employer

I've had head hunters ask me if they can talk to an ex-boss/colleague of mine (i.e. not current ones), but never had the HR people of a potentially hiring company do this to me.

If someone asked to speak to my CURRENT boss, I would have to decline the offer, it's just too dangerous UNLESS of course your current company is letting you go and they have agreed that you are free to search for alternative employments while finishing off your last few months.
