Why do employers not give references?
There are a lot of reasons a manager might decline to give you a reference, and not all of them mean that you’ve alienated your soon-to-be former boss. For example, it’s not unusual for companies to have a human resources (HR ) policy of only confirming job titles, dates of employment, and salary.
