Legally, they can disclose dates, verify title and if you are eligible for re-hire in California. It may be different in other states.

In the US, the strictest states restrict what can be disclosed without written consent from the former employee. They can verify your dates of employment and state the reason you left (voluntary/involuntary), they can say if you are eligible for re-hire. You have to provide consent in writing to disclose your rate of pay/salary (ie for a bank application). Again, this is going to vary state-to-state.

They can also answer whether they would hire you back or not.
