2 week notice and asking for reference

hello all

I recently accepted an offer with a government agency, with a start date of 1/2/18. I’m working as an auditor with a small POS firm, and right now we’re in the middle of busy season. I really don’t care about burning bridges, however, the  government agency still needs to contact my current employer To conduct a reference check. I don’t know my supervisor very well to know whether she will give me a good or bad reference, So I don’t know how to give my two weeks notice so that I can avoid a bad reference from this employer.

Any thoughts or ideas?
