Hi. I have lost a fantastic job this term. I was made redundant suddenly in July and got a glowing reference from HT. However, the HT from my previous job to that sent a poor reference to my new school. I went through a terrible time in that job with bullying tactics, and left under a Compromise Agreement in place, with an agreed reference. This HT informed the new school that she couldn't complete the online reference but sent in the agreed ref, stating in the email that 'this is an agreed reference and to contact her for any further information'. New school phoned her, she refused to say why this was an agreed ref. I had the job taken away on this basis. Union involved now contacting her to say she is in breach of the CA etc. I am now on JSA and can't find work easily as it's only two weeks in term, so looks likely I'll be out of work for a few more weeks at least. I was wondering if I could claim loss of earnings due to her being in breach of the CA in stating that it was 'an agreed reference'. I am struggling hugely now with finances due to this. Does anyone know whether this can be possible?
