References
ACAS have recently issued guidance on employment references http://www.acas.org.uk/index.aspx?articleid=5072. Nowadays references tend to be factual (to avoid problems such as misrepresentation and/or a dispute over the content). With a few exceptions however (e.g. businesses regulated by the FCA) previous employers can choose whether or not to provide a reference and so an outgoing employee should always try and get agreement on this. New employees may find their job conditional upon a reference and particular care needs to be taken there as e.g. the way in which someone resigns may determine their reference which, if a poor one, could present a problem with their new job.
