Yes the sickness days were accurate and the referee also stated how good I was at my job and that I had a lot of strengths to take to a future employer. He also said he'd be happy to discuss further with them and they called him. Again he stated that I was good at my job and that there'd been a lot going on at work in terms of colleagues leaving (we had a high staff turnover in my team under another manager) and my work load tripling without any support from my manager
I do not dispute that the time taken off waslegitimately caused by the employer tripling your workload.
The employer is not under a duty to reply toreferences although they are under a duty to reply accurately.
They can if they wish reply selectively andrefused to answer some questions if they think that it is not appropriate.
Your question seems to be 1 whether you can withdraw your resignation and2 have they done anything wrong bygiving details of time off sick.
1 unfortunately, an employer has no legalobligation to accept cancellation of resignation and it really comes down tothem.
2 The situation is quite simply that the newemployer can ask this information but the current employer is under no duty tovolunteer the information although if they do give the information, it must beaccurate
I'm sorry, I appreciate this is not the answeryou wanted but there is no point in me misleading you. I have a duty to adviseyou truthfully and honestly, even if the answer is unfavourable.
Does that answer the question? Can I assistfurther or answer any specific queries?
