Accenture HR: When a prospective employer runs a background check, does HR tell them reason for leaving (quit, fired, etc.) or just dates of employment? Was fired in September and wondering if I am required to tell them (upon asking why there’s a gap) if I was fired or just that I decided to leave.

Reason is not disclosed but they can ask “is this person eligible for rehire” and the employer can say yes or no.

I confirmed with HR before I left that I am eligible for rehire

Well if you say you left that’s technically the truth🥳

That’s exactly what I’ve been saying

No the reason is not disclosed. Keep it to yourself.

What was the basis for your firing?

Then do not worry about it. No need to disclose.
