Yes, you must still pay for the reference checking service regardless of a company policy to not release information. True, some employers do have policies that prevent them from sharing any more than basic information, but we do find that people are willing to ignore that policy if they’re motivated to give you a negative review. Again, what they say, and how they actually say it will often times reveal a great deal of information about what a prospective employer will learn.
If you think your employer may have such a policy, you can call and ask for the terms of that policy, while keeping in mind your reference may very well ignore the policy. Can you afford not to know?
