Here’s what you do: Obviously don’t tell them you were terminated. Tell them you’re still working there and they don’t know you’re looking. If there’s a form with the “permission to contact” the employer, make sure it is unchecked. If you need to provide references, don’t use the employer. If they ask why you’re looking.. say that you’re looking for the next challenge in your career. That’s my advice.
