My previous employer has stated in references that I had 3 unauthorized absences.

 

I had none, the dates in question I agreed with my manager I would not return to work, in exchange for handing in my resignation.

 

I attempted to query it and the company is now refusing to discuss it, they just keep stating the matter is closed and they will not talk further. I have asked repeatedly for them to clarify exactly what they have down for those supposed absences, but they are refusing.

 

Also, my Manager, when asked for a reference, was asked if he would employ me again, and if no to give a reason, he put no and refused to put why. Is this a bad reference, given the reason he is putting no is due to me filing a grievance against him and winning?

If your previous firm has given out false information (and you can prove this) they you potentially have a claim against them for any losses you suffer as a result.

 

This is why many firms refuse to give references apart from confirming dates of employment etc which can also cause problems for former employees.

 

Your second point about your former manager is harder to prove. If he is asked if he would employ you again and says "no" this is very hard to argue against. You would need to come up with proof that this cannot be a valid opinion (e.g. glowing appraisements, promotions, comments to other staff etc) To some extent he only starts to dig a hole for himself if he says why which is probably the reason he won't!

 

If you have any legal insurance (house / car / union etc) it may be worth asking them if they will take action on the first point. Otherwise paying for a letter from a solicitor may make them more careful next time they are asked.
