Should Backing Into a Fence Count Against Me As An "Accident"

by KEN

Early one morning, during a heavy rain, I backed up against a chain link fence at the drop. there was zero damage to both fence and trailer. i have since left that employer and and now find that potential new employers are telling me that they don't want me because i have had an accident at my former job.

By the way, there was no report made to dot or any other agency,my former employer said that they would not report it because it was "non-reportable incident".

My question is this, can my former employer tell potential employers that i was in an accident when there was no damage and no reports? any words of wisdom would be appreciated
