IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO COMPLETE THE REFERENCE INFORMATION AT THIS TIME, PLEASE CLICK THIS LINK
YOU WILL HAVE TO PROVIDE A REFERENCE AT SOME POINT.
Dear Member of Staff
It is company policy that ALL employees must have a written reference in their personnel files to validate their employment. Therefore we must ask you to complete the enclosed form with details of a referee and return it to me with your starting time sheet, within the next seven days!
The referee can be a former employer or somebody who has known you for at least 1 year (not a family member) and can testify to your character (e.g. personal tutor, doctor etc.). If you wish, you may collect your own reference letter and send it to the office instead of letting us contact your previous employer / referee and ask for a reference ourselves. If you wish to do this, please indicate it by ticking the correct part of the following form.
If you have only just arrived in the country then please ask a friend to write you a letter as a character reference, testifying to your personal qualities and working abilities. Please enclose this to go on your file.
If you do not know the address & post code of your previous employer, then please research it and include it on the form. Should any required sections be left blank, the form will be returned to you for completion again. You will be suspended from work without pay and your wages will be within until you have provided the necessary information for us to collect a reference or a letter of reference yourself. It is in your best interest to co-operate in this matter as failure to do so may affect the status of your employment and will result in delaying your wages.
