- Employment Policy Governing Employee References
This policy outlines the principles and procedures for providing professional references for current and former CSU
employees which include a prohibition on providing a positive verbal or written reference on behalf of the CSU for current or
former employees who are found to have engaged in misconduct that resulted in the employee being non-retained,
terminated, or separated through mutually agreed upon settlement terms. If an employee is currently under investigation for
misconduct or violation of university policy, requests for a reference by the CSU may not be given until the investigation and
any appeals have concluded.
Below are key points:
- Employees receiving requests for references from third parties must confer with their
Campus Human Resources
(staff, student, and/or management employees) or Faculty Affairs (faculty employees) Departments prior to
responding to the request, as the employee being asked to provide the reference may be unaware of relevant
information. Employees may not provide references on behalf of the CSU for employees who have been nonretained
or separated due to a finding that they engaged in misconduct.
- Personal references are permitted, but they must clearly indicate that they are not
made on behalf of the CSU.
Therefore, personal references may not be written on CSU Letterhead.
- Employment verifications for current or former employee must always be directed to
the Campus Human Resources
Department. Such verifications are limited to job title(s), dates of employment, and job duties.
- Employees receiving requests for references from third parties must confer with their Campus Human Resources
For full details and further explanation please refer to the Employment Policy Governing the Provision of Employee References.
