I think most of my friends have defined the areas to be covered while conducting reference checks for employees.
I would like to add that apart from this, it is also essential to authenticate the person who is supporting the information provided in the reference check. Getting the name and number of a 'refree' may not be enough as it is easy to falsify information & data over the phone.
It is advisable to ask for Co name, designation, land line number, mobile number, email-id etc as basic information for authentication.
Hope this helps.
Thanks and Regards

first of all thanks to all of u for replying to my query.
actually i have worked in a MNC (an IT firm )for two years but now i want to switch the job. i want to ask that i have done a project in java language in that company. but now in resume i want to show some a dummy/false project in some different computer programming language which i have not done in previous company at all.so will it be an offensive act???
do IT companies also enquire about employees projects in previous companies along with other verifications???
what actions can can be taken if this get caught???
my other documents such experience certificate,salary slips etc are perfectly legal.
