I googled this phrase but couldn't find anything useful. What does it mean? The sentences are below: The absolute minimum is a series of phone calls to verify employment dates and ask whether previous employers would rehire this person. Expect some companies to only disclosure the dates of of employment and the job title in today's "sue everybody" environment.
Besides I guess the word "expect" has been misused in the text and it actually should be except. What do you think about that?
Thanks in advance
In today's "sue everybody" environment, [you should] expect some companies to only disclose the dates of employment and the job title.
The UK is rapidly catching up with the US in our likelihood to sue (litigate). We are bombarded with adverts for companies who want to help you sue someone for compensation when you tripped over on the pavement because you weren't looking where you were going (that's not quite how they explain it in the advert!)
