General purpose ex-employee reference letter (EH001)

Use this document to create a standard reference for a current or past employee to a potential employer. It is not a legal requirement for an employer to provide an employee with a reference, unless it is a requirement in his/her employment contract. However, failure to provide a reference could leave an employer open to allegations of discrimination and you are therefore urged to provide an employee with a reference when asked. It is also important that your reference is free from language which could be discriminatory and the format of this reference should assist you in this process.
