These things are common in the corporate world, you have face with thick skin, please personally visit the new company and understand what background they received, it is better to be open and explain your current situation. It would have been wise, if you had informed them your rift and the reason for the same. Now that you can do little, but ensure that you clarify and get this resolved, so that in future you are careful.
All the best and wish you good luck

nashbramhallLet this be lesson for other members, who are thinking of quitting a job and not disclose the reasons at the time of the interview. Also, it is a sincere advice to bloggers to never antagonize a boss or co-workers, etc. We never know who knows whom.
Let me give an example. A friend narrated me this incident. He had left an organization and went to teach in a college. After about a year, his ex-boss went for an interview (after doing his Master degree) for a lecturer post at the same university. He met the ex-boss and they were chatting in the corridor. The Dean of the faculty had seen this and during the break in the interview session, he called the staff and asked him how he knew the candidate and what they were talking about. My friend was not treated well by his boss, when in the previous organization. This was the chance for him to get back at the boss. He told the Dean that the discussion was about Business Policy (BP)as a topic and that the candidate did not know much about it and was asking him whether BP and Strategic Management were the same, etc. The candidate did not get the job.
There are many instances where a person quits a job, as (s)he did not like the boss, and finds another only to find that the ex-boss has also joined the organization and (s)he has to work for him/her.

kishorkulkarniI fully endorse views expressed by Mr. Nashbramhall.
What I was suggesting whether there can be an association or forum to which issues such as employee leaving in-between a project, employer not relieving his employee and verification report negative and alike can be referred to? So that, there is a complete transparency of the affairs.

anonymoususer2013Hi All, I just wanted to know, is this harrassin
g a subordinate by an indivisual who is following unethical & corrupt practises.Only if a person is sitting higher up in the heirachy does that mean he has got all the right to harrass & abuse you.As per the company polic
y nobody is allowed to put up the comments about an indivisual in other companies. Everthing is confidential so how can he ask has his subordinates to go after & destroy my carrer.I will like to add further points about that
project manager & the practises that he has been following: 1. He use to do the recruitment which is fake (Candidates having fake experience). One of the known candidate which he has hired was having fake experience & was caught by the company after 2 months of Joining.But he protected him & allowed him to continue until that person has found another suitable opportunity. 2. He himself was having 1 year fake experience certificate basis on which he has travelled to usa (which is illegal) as he has obtained the visa by using the fake experience. So i just wanted to know if he is a manager does he has right to abuse you & deny you the fundamental right of livinghood.I just dont wanted to work in a company(particulary a division) where there unethical & corrupt practices are followed. Should i file a case against him for defamation & harrassment.

firstname.lastname@example.orgWhile I appreciate the predicaments in the current scenario - A Global Village where every body gets to know about others - such type of mudslinging affects the whole like of the affected people. While a person may commit a mistake or may not suit a culture of a particular organization, he should be let go, least without any slur so that he could lead his career else where. This would indeed provide an opportunity. We have not right to dictate the way of another and especially it affects his whole career prospects.
Leagally speaking, a company withdrawing an offer post issue, merely based on background check is not right. Neither is it a fair means. vasudevan

Premkumar NairDear Anonymous,
Don't do anything of that kind. As suggested by ms. Dolphy, if u can, meet the new employer and clarify. Else search for jobs elsewhere. Simultaneously, if u hv any proof, expose him of his illegal and unethical activities.
Best of luck.

We do not live in a ideal world; in the real world, so may atrocities take place. I was only giving examples from the real world.
In this particular case, the person can take legal steps provided he has the money to spend and patience (The court cases take a long time to bear fruit.).
From United Kingdom
I am unable to appreciate your views as a legal remedy does not lie always through a court of law. Every organization has levels of escalation and at least
the top level of any reputed organization look at an issue from a broader perspective. Ideal world does not mean giving up once rights or remedy altogether.
I would appreciate a forum like where a person looks for a remedy should guide a solution rather than advocating a submissive approach.

I will like to add further to the note. Earlier he was threatening that he will defame me through social networking site. He asked his subordinates to go after me & try to obtain a negative feedback from previous employer(Which was another Top IT Company), so that i should be terminated from this company. Upon his direction his certain subordinates went to my previous organization through social networking site, but they failed to get any negative feedback as in my previous organization all the work ethics were followed. I warned him that what you are doing is completely unethical & against the working policy of this organization & also against the law, as defaming somebody through social networking site is a crime punishable by law. I even notified this to concerned HR, but she asked me what proof do i have that he has done this.All the conversation that was confidential with Human Resource Department, was leaked to this Manager.From that day i have lost the trust in the management of this company.I decided to quit this organization, but he is not even letting me to quit the organization.He is suggesting me that the only alternative you have is to commit suicide.If i file a complaint against him, then there can be repercussion that my whole career will be destroyed.
As you must have seen in the past that there are so many corporate scams that coming to highlight these days. These scams do'nt occur overnight , they are initiated long time ago , but they burst after sometime. It is the people like him who oblige the other people , get the full support of these people whom which they are favoring, even put the relatives in the Human Resource department & if anybody resists or complaints they are badly crushed. Some technical project managers have become so much smart particularly in the software companies that they have started to get their relatives hired in the Human resource department & they are virtually controlling the full organization through them.
