yes I do. I joined on the understanding I provided a ref from my last employer and a social ref. I have provided my social ref from a long standing Metropolitan Police Investigator, which was accepted and several past employers refs including one from May or June 2014.
in the forthcoming CQC Inspection, they will ask my present employers why they did not obtain one from my last employers. I don't want this to become a problem for my new employers.
I have asked my representative at ACAS to ask that question. She said at the start, it's not unusual to do a deal, but I refused saying I am not willing to "buy" my own reference!
Having thought about how much I need to keep my new job, I asked the rep today could she speak with the Manager (Dr Tandons husband) if he would write me a reference if I did decide to forego the owed holiday money (he asked if I'd accept (102 instead of 111.80 as he didn't include 30th June training day in the holiday calculated, even though I worked 2nd July, which still would have been 2 complete months until Friday, 28th August, as Monday 31st the surgery was closed, being Bank Holiday).
what would be your advice, if he says he will write one in exchange for paying me the holiday money? Where would he stand legally? And
should I say to just lower the amount he pays me?paying me o
Ok have taken this on board. I was thinking they may ask to not pay me at all, in lieu of reference. I may ask they pay an arranged reduced amount.
THank you for your time Ben. I would leave a tip but I've paid £38, plus I may not get this money at all yet.
