But if I had already received an offer could an HR issue like that result in one being rescinded? I mean I certainly wouldn't lie about it anywhere, but if that would be a problem after it was too late to accept an offer for anywhere else that could completely screw me. If so is there any way that I could know ahead of time what firm would do that so that I could make sure not to accept an offer from them?
Sounds like a complete non-issue. When called for references, former employers generally won't go further than confirming dates of employment. So long as you didn't do something that resulted in widespread news coverage or jail time, you're fine. If someone asks you why you left that job, just say that you felt like it was time to move on, or you wanted to go to law school, or something like that. Certainly no need to volunteer that you were fired, which it doesn't even really sound like you were, anyway.
