You do not have to give a work reference letter, but if you do, it must be fair, accurate and appropriate. Use this recommendation letter when you seek to write a reference about a current or former employee. Ensure you don't fall foul of the law by using this letter to create a reference for an employee. This employment reference letter covers situations where a current employee has applied for a new position, or left your employ and been offered a new job.
