If HR from the new company does a bg check and the HR from old company finds out exactly where I was going, would that be detrimental to my employment? Thank you.

How long does a company keep your employment status ? like start and end date or payslips or reasons of leaving etc

Maybe say that "I was not a good fit for what they wanted/for the demands of the job"?

Can I just put reason of leaving as "worklife balance" ? Will anyone be able to find out ?

JAMES7088 Hi all,
A quick check, based on SG context is reference check carried out before or after a verbal job offer?
