About Me


Found 1 result

  1. About two years ago, I was made redundant as a Labour Ward Matron at an NHS Trust which I had worked at for 9 and half years (in same position)I took them to the employment tribunal, but had to drop the case because it was going to cost me more money than my compensation and my job would not be given back.After trying for almost two years to find another job, I finally got one and was asked for two references from my previous employer.This meant I needed two referees from1) My Line Manager (Head of Midwifery)2) Director of Nursing (The boss of Head of Midwifery)So, I the new employer wrote to my old employer asking for two references.This is what happened.Firstly, my former Line manager (whose references were the most crucial to me being awarded the job) said she couldn't give me a reference and passed it to the HR director.I was infomed by the HR Director that I will only get one reference, instead of two that is required, and not from my former line Manager, but from her (HR Director)When I contacted the HR director and asked why I couldnt get the two required references, she informed me that due to the agreement during the employment tribunal (that is, they, the NHS trust, said they would provide me with a glowing reference if I ever needed one). This, according to the HR Director, meant I was only entitled to one.Now, I never signed any agreement that I will only get one reference from them. By the way, is there a limit to the amount of references that a former employer can give you? I thoguht there is a law that is againt witholding a former employees references or giving negetive reference, especially in the NHS.Now, I am stuck.I need help and advice.who can I report this to.I am thinking of contacting my local MP and my local news paper, becasue I believe this is another form of descrimination.
