References Policy and Procedure #5
All businesses will have staff turnover and will receive reference requests from other employers. It is important that reference requests are dealt with consistently and fairly and that only designated employees from your service provide them, to ensure that no liability for discrimination is incurred if a reference request is dealt with inappropriately. Given the sector, employers are also required to ensure that all individuals are of good character. The policy has been reviewed with minimal change.
