Can a prospective employer share background check info with my current employer?

I am retiring from the military and I am one of two finalists for a City position. The city is currently conducting background and reference checks on myself and the other finalist. My question is--Can the City share the details of my background check with my current military employer?

Yes they can. I have filled out work applications and they ask for references from previous employers and also ask if they can contact your previous employer. Of course, I haven't filled one out in a long time but i think they still ask that. It varies per employer.

I don't think so, unless they were violent, sexual acts of some sort then they are forced to say what it is.
