What should an employer state in a reference when the employee is claiming constructive dismissal?
Do you have any information on giving a reference while there is an ongoing constructive dismissal claim. The two issues are i) the duty to the prospective new employer; and ii) The employer's policy states that it will include a "reason for leaving" in a reference, what should the employer state as the reason for leaving when this is still in dispute (i.e. resignation or constructive dismissal). Any further guidance you may have is much appreciated.
