Mississippi employment screening law:
Giving Employment References In Mississippi
Apparently, Mississippi employment screening law does not provide specific protection to employers as it relates to supplying references concerning past employment.
It would seem that previous employers may provide any non-confidential information about a previous employee, so long as it’s true and isn’t provided to maliciously harm the employee. An employer who provides false information that disparages the employee may be liable for defamation.
Lacking specific protection by state law, In order to avoid potential liability, many employers often refuse to comment on a past employee’s job performance and confirm only minimal information such as dates of hire and separation, plus wage or salary information.
This practice, however, leaves employers between the proverbial “Rock and a Hard Place” as they may find themselves the target of a lawsuit from a subsequent employer for failing to disclose a potentially dangerous employee.
Please note that Federal employment screening law mandates background checks for employees who are engaged in particular industries.
The Office of Inspector General of the Department of Health and Human Services maintains a list of individuals who are excluded from participation in any of its federally-funded healthcare programs.
Exclusions are due to convictions for program-related fraud and patient abuse, licensing board actions and default on health education assistance loans.
Therefore, employers in affected industries should check the OIG Exclusion list before hiring employees who might work in such programs. The FACIS® program is also very important when screening medical personnel.
