Some schools place great weight on the recommendations; others, not so much. It is very important that you have an honest conversation with the person who is asking for the recommendation. This is admittedly a hard conversation to have, for you and for the student, but you are not doing the student any favors by sparing his or her feelings at this juncture. Be straightforward and state clearly the reasons why you feel you cannot offer an enthusiastic recommendation.

A review of the records indicates that his accounts with the firm are in order and that there are no outstanding major complaints against him. X may continue in affiliation with this firm under his present contract for as long as he wishes to do so.
The drivers are not employees of this firm. They drive under contract and do not report their income to this firm. Thus, Management can make no statement about a driver's earnings. Management does not regulate when or where the drivers work and takes no report from them on these matters or on their income.

Sincerely, Another Uber Driver Responsible Company Official As for office employees, we had a "confirm or deny" policy that included dates of employment, average hours worked per week, job title and last salary paid.
We would give an oral response to a telephone query about job description, with the understanding that it would be general in nature and would include no assessment of performance or lack thereof. The whole confirm or deny business started with a lawsuit that was filed here many years back.
There was a secretary at an accounting firm on K Street. She would come to work late or not at all.
When she did show up, it was often hung over and dishevelled. She usually returned from lunch under the influence of alcohol, drugs or both. She was rude and obnoxious. The firm warned her repeatedly and documented everything. Finally, they fired her.
She went to a law firm to apply for a job. The law firm contacted the accounting firm. The accounting firm gave her a bad reference. She got onto the Witness Stand and admitted that everything that the accounting firm told the law firm was true.
Even when the suit was first filed, "confirm or deny" policies suddenly sprung up across the country. Had she lost, there are still the legal fees. You can not get any protection, these days, against a bad hire.
Uber likely will not give Original Poster any letter, even one similar to that which we gave to our drivers. If it did that, I would guess that thousands of former Uber drivers would be looking for letters.
