From our experience of advising employees on redundancies and the terms of their compromise agreements, we have seen that typically, employers give standard reference letters for their employees. It is highly unusual for employees facing redundancy to receive detailed character references. A standard job reference letter normally states your title, the date you started in the role and the term of your employment.

It may be possible to negotiate a detailed character reference, but advice should be sought from experienced employment law solicitors.
