Employment Reference

This Employment Reference Letter is a simple statement that is provided by an employer to confirm the employment history and details of a former employee.

The document 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?

An Employment Reference Letter 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 another 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 Employment Reference Letter can be signed by the relevant person and provided to the employee as a record of their employment with the employer.


Applicable Law

There are no laws outlining what must be put into an employment reference letter. Case law further suggests that there is no legal obligation on the employer's part to provide a reference.
