Question:"Can I make an offer of employment conditional on references? How do I do so? Who judges if a reference is satisfactory?"
HR Tip: You certainly can do so by stating clearly in the offer letter: "This offer of employment is made subject to our receiving two satisfactory references, one of which must be from your current/most recent employer." You alone are entitled to determine whether or not a reference is satisfactory.
