Employer will not provide references. Is this standard or even legal?

My current employer has a policy where any manager asked to provide a reference must direct the request to HR where they will only provide the dates of employment and position held.

Is this something anyone else has dealt with? Frankly it doesn't sound like it should even be legal (I'm in the US).
