Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Does an employer have to provide a reference if you ask for one?

Before exploring the legalities in regards to employment references, we should perhaps begin with the more basic question, on whether or not an employer must provide an employee with a reference if one is requested. And the answer? Well, no, there is no general duty for an employer to provide an employee with a reference. 

That was the simple bit in regards to this area of law.
