“Third, you must intend only for your neighbor’s benefit to spare him from loss, not out of hatred for your former worker.

“Fourth, if it is possible to bring about the benefit without revealing the bad – such as by simply saying, ‘I have reservations about recommending him’ – you should do so.

“Finally, if actual damage will come to the worker, e.g., he has already entered an agreement and signed a contract, and the employer will break it off unilaterally, there are further restrictions.” (See Hil. Rechilus 9:5-6)
