Can you give someone a bad job reference?

References just have to be accurate and truthful. So if you were disciplined at your last job, then they could include that on your reference. However, many employers are scared to give bad references because anything considered to be not 100% accurate could be grounds for legal action.

How do you write a reference for someone you don’t like?

“Ask them to send you a description reminding you of what you worked on together, their updated resume, and the job description for the job that they are going for. This makes it easier to tailor your recommendation and make it relevant,” says Turner. Just avoid saying anything negative, says Magas.
