If you've been laid off, how upfront are you about it in interviews? Better to let them know right away or further into the process?

I haven’t been laid off but I have been fired. It always comes up so you’d better have an explanation.

I’ve never been fired/laid off, but I’ve interview people that have. Trust me, we know before you came in. I actually don’t bring it up and wait until they do. If they have a reasonable answer, no issue. If they bash their old company or blame others, that’s a red flag.

I’ve brokerchecked myself and don’t see any mention of being terminated by a previous firm. Am I missing something or does it not report this info?
