This is the form you need to send along with any reference requests.

How long does it take for head office to get back to the company asking for the employment reference? Why cant wages in my store or the PM give the information?

If you have a good relationship with your manager they will sometimes do it for you.  It works both ways though as some people wouldn't want their manager or store having the chance to give a new employer any potential information that could compromise your chances.

If you are dismissed for awol your reference will say start date, leaving date, would not re employ.

Just curious if anyone’s ever seen their reference? I had a written warning 4 years ago and am now leaving Tesco and wondering will this be mentioned in my reference?

Cheers

nope, join date, leaving date position held.

Legally cannot give a bad ref so you're previous warning wont be on it

They can give a poor one if it's genuine/accurate.

For example if they said you had poor attendance, when you had impeccable attendance, that's not allowed.

Though, I'd hazard a guess and tesco simply say nothing to save any potential arguments.

It does seem that ACAS hate to see employers taken to court, I suppose ACAS being a government body it would be against their interests to see any employer that pays significant amounts of taxes lose money in the courts.
