References eBook

How to write a reference

Writing references can be one of those administrative 'grudge' tasks nobody wants to do. If you are unsure or nervous about providing references and the content of such documents see this guide.

There is no legal requirement that obliges an employer to give an employee a verbal or written reference. While an employer is under no obligation, an employer may be asked to provide a reference for the employee for potential new employers.

The only obligation can be derived from the wording of an employment agreement or as part of a settlement following the raising of a personal grievance.

Employers may avoid giving references and prefer only to give a certificate of service because they may be worried by anything negative that is said if the employee does not live up to any positive comments made.

The implications of the new Privacy Act (2020) also need to be considered.

Various forms and sample letters are also provided with the eBook.
