    re-heated curry is the BEST. We actually cook our curry at least one day before we plan to serve it just because re-heated curry tastes amazing. (10+ hours in the crock; one day in the fridge; heat and enjoy.)

    We cook the rice, fresh, though.

    Although, personally, I have no problem with re-heated rice. It seems like the consequences are mostly limited to diarrhoea and emetic effects (if there are any at all) and I’ve never suffered even as much as those. Life’s too short to obsess about such risks — particularly when one regularly eats their sandwiches with fingers bearing traces of climbing chalk and whatever WAS in that pocket on the last pitch before the ledge on which one’s stopped to do so.

    It is generally accepted in the world of HR & employment legislation that when an employee gives his/her employer’s address to another business as a reference, he/she has in effect given their employer permission to disclose personal data and so far as I’m aware there is no current case law to require further explicit information. This may change under the new GDPR legislation.

    As a couple of other posters have stated, there’s no legal requirement to give a reference. In general though it is accepted that they must be honest and factually correct, although this is, as one person said because failure to do so may result in libel action against the reference giver. That however, has only ever happened once to my knowledge and that was limited to a case involving two businesses were both in the financial services industry and both legally obliged to give references under FSA legislation.

    In practice you’d never manage to sue either parties, because of several difficulties you’d find it almost impossible to overcome and any compo would be outweighed by the cost of recovery.
