Section 15-15 References

(1) An employee who leaves after lawful dismissal is entitled to a written reference from the employer. The reference shall state the employee's name, date of birth, the nature of the work and the duration of employment.

(2) This provision does not restrict the employee's right to request a more detailed reference in relation to employment where this is customary and not otherwise provided in a collective pay agreement.

(3) An employee who is summarily dismissed is also entitled to a reference, but the employer may state that the employee was summarily dismissed without giving the reasons for the dismissal.
