Employee Reference Policy

At IVONNE, Inc. ("IVONNE"), we value the privacy and confidentiality of our current and former employees. This Employee Reference Policy is designed to outline our approach to handling reference requests for our former employees in a way that respects their privacy and complies with our organizational standards.

Policy Overview

Provision of References

  • IVONNE, Inc. provides standardized references for former employees. These references strictly include the confirmation of employment dates and job titles.
  • To maintain fairness and confidentiality, we do not provide personal evaluations or comments on performance, conduct, or reasons for departure.

Request Procedure

  • All reference requests must be submitted in writing, since our reference information is only provided in writing. Reference details will not be provided by phone.
  • All reference requests from recruiters and employers for our former employees require written confirmation or prior approval from the individual concerned. IVONNE is committed to respecting the privacy and wishes of our former staff members, and as such, we do not provide any references without the direct permission and advance notification from the former employee. This policy ensures that we maintain the highest standards of confidentiality and professional integrity in all our communications.
  • Requests should be directed to the contact information provided at the bottom of this policy, ensuring a consistent and professional response.

Legal Compliance

  • We adhere to all applicable laws and regulations concerning employment references, data protection, and privacy.
  • Our responses to reference requests are guided by these legal frameworks.


The privacy of our employees, both current and former, is paramount. All information is handled with the utmost confidentiality.


In conclusion, IVONNE upholds a strict policy of obtaining consent from former employees prior to responding to reference requests. This practice is part of our ongoing commitment to respect the privacy and autonomy of our former team members. We believe this approach not only aligns with our core values of integrity and confidentiality but also fosters a trusting and respectful relationship with our past employees.
