This Statement of Service, sometimes called a Reference Letter, is a simple statement which is provided by an employer to confirm the employment history and details of a former employee.
The Statement of Service is intended to be an accurate record of employment, including the employee's job title, period of employment/service and a summary of duties.
How to Use this Document
A Statement of Service can be provided to a departing employee, upon request, to confirm the details of their employment with the employer. In this document you can enter the relevant details of the Employee's employment including the position title, period of service and a summary of duties.
You can also choose whether you wish to provide a personal reference for the employee. A personal reference is a personal statement from the employee's supervisor or other relevant party. Again, providing a personal reference is entirely optional, but is customary where an employee has performed well in their role.
Once completed, this Statement of Service can be signed by the relevant person and provided to the employee as a record of their employment with the Employer.
A Statement of Service is commonly provided upon request from departing employees. Although not required under the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) or any law, many industrial instruments and Modern Awards do make the provision of a Statement of Service compulsory, where requested by a departing employee.
