What must be taken into account for a job reference?

On the basis of § 630 BGB, § 109 GewO and § 16 BBiG, the employee is entitled to a reference. Job references are generally to be formulated in a benevolent manner, whereby the contents of the reference must correspond to the truth. The reason for termination may be mentioned in the reference, but does not have to be. In the case of termination for operational reasons, for example, there is a right to have the termination of the employment relationship for operational reasons expressed in the reference.
