Business Strategy: A Reference on References If you are assigned the task of developing a new reference policy for your company, remember the following guidelines. 1. Stick with factual disclosures: Use “There was an accusation of embezzlement and he resigned,” not “He is an embezzler.” 2. Stick with easily defined terms: Use “Angers easily,” not “He is a lunatic.” 3. Report what happened, not your view: Use “Other staff members complained about her conduct and work,” not “She was a constant pain in the neck.” 4. Implement an exit interview in which you disclose the information you have on file that will be given when references are requested. 5. Verify the protections offered under your state law, if any.
