    Agency Requesting References

    hi ya boys and girls. yes im still alive.

    Been on a contract for 6 months now, agency has called me requesting references from my last 4 employers stating that i am obliged to give them.

    What are my rights here, some of my past contracts have been less then 6 weeks.

    Really i am only interested in giving them a minimum of 3 and of the more lengthy contracts i have had.

    Thoughts?

        The agency have obviously decided that it's time to trawl for some leads.

            Say OK I'll get back to you on that one, repeat the response each time and they'll get fed up and trawl elsewhere. I've never heard of 4 refs needed, they must be really struggling.

                  What if they were to temp you with a cool refreshing Sprite?
                  I remember the good old days of this site when people used to moan about serious contractor related issues like house prices and immigration. How times have changed!?

                    This reference malarky is a pain in the arse
                    I suggest we all hire someone who will give reference for all.
                    maybe pcg can start a reference service
