most companies will not provide references of any kind these days - if they do all it should have on it is - he was employed for this role, he started on 01/01/2010 his employment ended 01/01/2015 - he had this many sick days - just the basic stuff - they certainly should not be saying stuff like he was lazy, couldnt do his job etc etc.

 

I think that if he explains the issue he had with his termination date with his old employer to his new employer that they will be anderstanding about it.

If it says so in his contract then the local manager doesnt have any right to unilaterally change that term. Ultimately if he leaves having given notice there is nothing they can do.

Maybe the manager is right as it is either one week notice or one month notice.

 

I haven't heard of a two week' notice.

 

Best he writes to them and point it out to them.

 

Though he is leaving but there is no point in burning bridges when you don't need to.

 

If it is a big company they will always give a good reference as it isn't worth the trouble.

Actually most companies now just give a generic one confirming they worked from xx date to xx date. Some retailers dont even give one at all.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..
