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, all the relevant details of the employee's employment including the position title, period of service and a summary of duties can be entered.
It is also possible to provide a personal reference for the employee. A personal reference is a personal statement from the employee's supervisor or other relevant parties which is entirely optional.
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.
There are no laws outlining what must be put into an employment reference letter. Caselaw further suggests that there is no legal obligation on the employer's part to provide a reference.
