I've never had a prospective employer contact a current employer without asking specific permission. Any employer with any degree of common sense knows that most employed applicants are in your position. If they are considering making you an offer and just want to check references, normally they will tell you that and ask if there is anyone specific (a trusted colleague, perhaps) they should contact.
