The answer in detail

Tips for requesting a work reference

As an employee, you have a right to receive a work reference at any time – both during and after your working relationship. The limitation period is ten years. If the content of the reference is incomplete, ambiguous, or violates other principles applicable to references, such as the duty of truthfulness, you are entitled to have it corrected.

Other legal information can be found in our document. We have also put together the following two templates for you: “Request for the issue of a work reference” and “Request for the correction of a work reference.”
