“Just as,when an employer calls in regards to a potential hire,and doesn’t get much out of that previous employer,other than a confirmation of previous employment is an employers way of saying the former employee is a bad employee.”

Not so.
The only thing a former employer is ALLOWED to say is “so and so worked here from x date to y date”.
That’s it.
That law was put in place to prevent/diminish blackballing.

There is nothing illegal about praising an ex-employee, if that employee is praise-worthy, you just cannot say anything bad about an employee.

If an employer has nothing good to say, it is a signal unto itself that there’s probably a reason why an employer will just confirm employment and nothing more. It may have been put there to protect employees, but smart employers know how to use these regulations
