I'm wondering if people can help.
I write the references for our company for any staff that have left the business and have requested one.
This week I came across a request for an employee that was dismissed for poor performance.
One of the questions was 'why did the individual leave the company?' and I didn't know how to answer it.
I know that you cannot write a bad reference but to say he was dismissed was the truth...? Would it be better to decline to reference?
I've looked on the CIPD and ACAS websites but havn't come across much that's helped. Has anyone got any advice or come accross similar situations?
