SOC 100 Checking an Applicant's Background

How far does an employer have to go to check an applicant's employment references and background to avoid a negligent hiring claim?  What information may a previous employer provide in response to a reference check?  How would you recommend balancing the new employer's need for information regarding an applicant's background and the applicant's privacy rights?  Please provide examples as part of your response to each question.
