The Employee Reference Question

The Employee Reference Question

One of the most common questions I get asked is ‘What shall I put in an employee reference’?

It’s all well and good if everyone got on, there were no problems and the employee in question left on good terms, that does not tend to pose any questions.

It’s the iffy, ‘I was well rid but really don’t want to say so’ references that cause the dilemmas.

In short, you can give a factually based reference for everyone, the good, the bad and the indifferent.

These are the key details to confirm:

  • Job title
  • Start and end date of employment
  • Short disclaimer at the bottom

That way you cannot be accused of discrimination in any form as you are treating everyone the same. Steer clear from personal opinions because they are exactly that – personal and can cause all sorts of issues.

Keep it short and to the point. For guidance simply download our How-To Guide, which contains a sample reference policy and wording here or call us on 0330 555 1139.
