A Certificate of Employment, also called an Employment Certificate, is used to verify the employment history of a former or current employee.
If the employee is no longer employed by the employer, the employer usually issues the Certificate of Employment upon request by the employee. It is usually requested to complete the requirements for employment with a new employer.
Sometimes, a current employee might request for a Certificate of Employment for other purposes, such as for a visa application.
The Certificate of Employment is a statement of fact of the employment of the employee. The Certificate of Employment is not a recommendation, clearance, Certificate of Good Moral Character, Salary Certification or a Waiver of any claim of the employer against the employee.
Employers are required by law to give a Certificate of Employment upon the request of a former employee. The Certificate of Employment should be issued within three (3) days from the time of the employee's request. For practicality, the Certificate of Employment is usually requested from and signed by a personnel of the Human Resource Department or the person who handles employee matters.
