How does employment verification work?

Can a company find out if you quit, were fired or laid off?

    Generally a third party employment verification company will call previous employers. Depending on who picks up they might just get your name you worked there and if you are eligible for rehire, or they might get much more than that including reason for termination, or all sorts of possibly true gossip.

    They call & ask or pay a 3rd party to do so.  When I was young, I verified my own employment as I answered the phone.

    Yes. They call the previous employer and ask.
