I don't know about the USA, but in Canada it's not legal for an employer to badmouth a former employee to a possible future employer.
If negative comments are not allowed then references from previous employers are pointless.
I'm not sure if that is good or bad.
If your reference comes back as "we can confirm this person worked here from X to Y period" and nothing else, it's pretty obvious what is going on, even to the most dimwitted recruiter.
