I am preparing to leave this company. Someone’s post reminded me of a story I heard about HR giving a bad reference to an employee that wasn’t accurate and fair at all. Honestly, I’m afraid this could happen to me too, knowing how our HR works. Does anyone have experience with a bad reference or do you know someone who has been harmed by such a reference in their future career?

DO NOT LIST ANY L3Harris manager or supervisor on your resume if you are looking to leave the company. Use a co-worker or provide the HR phone number. L3Harris slanders and character assassinates employees looking to leave the company. Get out of this company as fast as you can.
"How can you not list your direct manager of supervisor when it is asked?
I don't see away around it. "
Again, you're in HR and posing, so save the naive inquiry.
YOU CAN LIST WHO YOU REPORTED TO AND ASK THAT THEY NOT BE CONTACTED OR HAVE THE CORPORATE OFFICE CONTACTED DIRECTLY. ALL YOU REALLY NEED IS CONFIRMATION THAT YOU IN FACT WORKED FOR THE COMPANY.
At best when WFH... "Find something else to do. Drink coffee. Walk the halls. Gossip" neither HR or managers knew what employees did even when in office so employees have to do "pre-evaluation" reviews and declare stretch goals.... and even though a technology company they outsourced that at great expense even though paying HR top dollar for nothing. They DO process terminations well.

Just don't rely on HR to provide the reference. Most potential employers realize that people who were colleagues in your own department are the better reference. However, let me caution you to not list your direct supervisor or manager. I know that L3H tends to be very petty and vindictive when people leave.
HR is not seen as an important role at any company. I've talked with lots of hiring managers who know that any HR rep just protects their own company.
This is another HR ghosted post looking for information. Seriously?!
