Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Good afternoon, thank you for contacting Just Answer my name is***** am a solicitor and I will be assisting you today. In practice the majority of references these days are factual: which include your name dates of employment, job role and duties. The primary reason for factual references is because it is unlikely that any prospective employer can draw a negative inference about the employee.
You can always request to see a copy of any reference before this is sent to a potential employer.
Your employer has a legal duty to make sure that any reference is accurate and not misleading to your prospective employer.
Yes, this can still be disclosed as this is an accurate record of your disciplinary history, however in practice I think this is unlikely that it would be disclosed.
Do you have any follow up questions?
Thank you for the confirmation, if you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us. We wish you all the best going forwards.
