HR practitioners and lawyers will be familiar with the UK case of Spring v Guardian Assurance [1995] 2 AC 296, that an employee may make such a claim following a reference negligently prepared by an employer.

Regular readers of my blog (www.employmentlawupdate.wordpress.com) will also be familiar with the case of Bullimore v Pothecary Witham Weld Solicitors. Now the High Court has passed down its decision in McKie v Swindon College, which is authority for the proposition that an employer may be liable to a former employee in tort for damages for negligent misstatement when communicating with a future employer about him.
