Hi I'm looking for some advice. I received a conditional offer for a job and on the application that HR sent me, they have given me the option to say yes or no to them contacting my current employer. I haven't told my current job that I'm interviewing and don't intend to until I have a confirmed offer and start date. My current job is stagnant in regards to growth which is why I'm ready to move on after 4 years. I want to note that the application asks for 3 references that aren't previous employers. Is it acceptable to check the "no" box and not give them permission to contact my current employer?
