I think reporting improper behavior, when it occurs, to DBHDS is appropriate. My concern is that employers may sabotage employees efforts to find employment. If the individual is a current employee, will the employer be expected to dismiss the current employee if they give a bad character reference? How will the employee counter false claims by current or previous employers? I understand the signed consent is much like asking for a reference from your employer. A current employee may fear retaliation if their current employer gets a request.
