It is not called anything in particular, and there is nothing illegal or improper about a manager mentioning that he and an employee have a "history"--in fact, it would likely be improper to NOT mention this, since by mentioning it, the manager puts all the facts on the table and prevents there from being an undisclosed bias affecting the outcome.
