How should I ask in an interview whether a company has a ‘No-Reference’ policy?

by on

Question: “Is it appropriate to ask during an interview what the company policy is regarding giving references? I worked for a company for two years, and then decided to move on. It was then that I learned about the company’s strict “no-reference” policy. It was not mentioned in the employee manual. Now I have a gap in my references that looks bad through no fault of my own.” — Donna Byerly

Yeah but the stupid thing is all those companies with “no reference” policies, will also refuse to hire someone who doesn’t have positive references from their previous employer ! What a load of BS.
