Re: Potential employer demanding a reference from current employer

It's clear that your current position will be compromised if the potential firm contacts your current employer.

I have heard of contacting previous employers for a reference but never the current one.

Sounds like the potential firm has some reasoning ability issues and I'd be wary.

Also you used the word "demanding" to describe the situation, that alone is enough to raise a red flag in my mind.
