When it comes to employees’ redundancy rights, we have seen much discussion around reference letters, specifically in relation to an employer’s willingness to provide more than a standard reference. A standard job reference merely provides the employee’s name, the date he or she started employment, the date his or her employment ended and his or her role. Of course, many employees want more than this and from our experience as employment law solicitors this can be negotiated, but it depends greatly on the employer’s policy.

From advising on employment rights and compromise agreements, something which has stood out is that the seniority of an employee does not really impact on an employer’s decision to provide more than a standard work reference.
