When we should contact the references, after we employ the candidate or before we interview?
As for the current employment, usually you will need to ask the candidate if
you can contact the current employer. If the candidate say No, then you
cannot call the current employment due to ethical reasons. However, you can
ask the candidate, if they are hired, when can you call the current
employer. Most candidates will say after they are being hired or they will
give you a date to call the current employer. On the other hand, some
candidates may say Yes and hence, you can call their current employer. So it
all depends on their answer.
