Employment References

Shiva Shadi, Partner and Head of Employment at Davis Blank Furniss

Employment references are run of the mill everyday occurrences, however they do cause no end of issues for employers and – in turn – employees.

Helpfully, ACAS has released guidance on providing employment references, setting out what references should include, whether or not references must be provided and whether an employer can give a bad reference etc.

Whilst most organisations now tend to provide factual references, this does not preclude employees requesting more detailed references to be provided so they can stand out from the crowd in what is currently a competitive job market.
