My previous employer has terminated my contract and they asked me to sign for a self resignation letter for their record.  They did not issue any termination letter to me.  As such, when I apply for my new job, I fill in the application letter as self resigned under the reason for leaving the company.  However, as my new employer check reference with my previous employer, they stated "termination" under the reason of leaving.  Therefore, I have the following questions:
1) In normal case, would the new employer ask me to leave because of this.
2) Is it correct or wrong for my previous employer state "termination" for my reason of leaving the company?
3) If my previous employer cannot state "termination" for my reason of leaving, what should I do and how can I stop my previous company to use the word "termination".
