An employer who discloses information about the job performance of an employee or former employee to a prospective employer of the employee or former employee at the request of the prospective employer or the employee or former employee is presumed to be acting in good faith and, unless lack of good faith is shown by a preponderance of the evidence, may not be held liable for the disclosure or its consequences.

     (1) recklessly, knowingly, or with a malicious purpose disclosed false or deliberately misleading information; or

     (2) disclosed information in violation of a civil right of the employee or former employee that is protected under AS 18.80 or under comparable federal law.
