A previous employer does not have to provide a reference not even a basic one that confirms your date of employment with the exception of the financial services.

I resigned from my position and was offered a new post conditional on two references but my last job did not provide a reference and I missed out on the job and legally they do not have to provide a reference.

I am therefore petitioning for it to be a legal requirement for all employers to provide a basic reference which confirms your date of employment with the company.

It is not fair or right that when you leave a post your employer don't have to provide a reference despite leaving on good terms. So, please join me and sign this petition so that we can change the law.
