I've recently started with a new job, but require a reference from my previous employer, but my previous employer says they do not provide references to contract staff (which I was). Therefore I would like to know if there is anything that prevents my previous employer from disciminating against me in this way?
OK, thanks Ben,
That's all I needed to know.
That's good to clarify the situation, even though it's not in my favour. Thank you for the prompt and concise response. I'll certainly remember this service in future.
