Basic Reference Reply Letter

Where the Employer operates a policy of providing basic references confirming employment dates and job title only, this template letter may be used.

It is important that as an Employer you are consistent in your approach to providing references.

Where an Employer fails to provide a reference for an Employee or ex-Employee because, for example, the individual previously brought a discrimination complaint, or made an allegation of unlawful discrimination, he or she may have a tribunal claim against the Employer for victimisation.
