Just to let you know... If you are an existing user before 18th September, you may notice the model documents have changed. This is to coincide with our website relaunch: we wanted to refresh the content too. Don't worry, these are not legally required changes so you can continue to use the previous version you have saved or downloaded. (We have kept the previous date as well to make it easy to reference.)
This letter can be used if a reference from an ex-employee's prospective employer ask for special category data in a reference. It asks the individual concerned whether they consent to the data being included in the reference.
This model policy can be used to set out the company’s position with regards to providing employment references. The template contains sections to cover who should be responsible for providing references, the content of references and matters relating to data protection.
