Subject: Is there legal action against bad reference in NJ?

Is there any legal action I can take if a former employer gives me a bad reference in the state of NJ?

And what is the most gracious way of letting them know I will use them as a reference. I'm thinking about sending them a nice email to let them know.

I was already promised a good reference from one of the owners of the company. Heck, I did good job, but they let me go cause... yep TOO SLOW! But he did say I was very professional, on time all the time, ect...

I was working with a recruiter last week. I went through the trouble of going in for an interview, spending the time to fill out my profile on their website, then I never get a responce from him. This ticked me off. I took most of my profile down tonight. I emaile him and asked that he take the remainder down with no explanation why. I hope he doesn't send me a nasty email. I dont' want to get mean and in a fight. I just hate when I get treated with such dispespect.

Siggh.. recruiters are the worst in my opinon. Now I know they are all the same and will never change.

Thanks for letting me vent.

Well,

I am "slower" than you because I only understand a portion of your post :lol:
If you think about it, there are more than likely some folks-or at least one person- where you once worked that you can ask to be a reference. This might sound dishonest, but it does not always have to be your boss that you can put down as reference...do you catch my drift :?:

t I doubt you'll get a nasty email from this recruiter... the ones who don't take time to respond aren't going to take time to send an email. I'm curious - why did you take the profile down?

I also found the Parachute book a real anchor in the storm.
