References Policy and Procedure #5
All businesses will have staff turnover and will receive reference requests. It is important that reference requests are dealt with consistently and fairly, and that only the approved employees are able to 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 and amendments made to the purpose, policy, procedure, and a new form is included.
