A Certificate of Employment, also called an Employment Certificate, is used to verify employment history of a former or current employee.
If the employer is no longer employed by the employer, the employer usually issues the Certificate of Employment upon request by the employee and after the employee has been issued a clearance by the employer. 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.
How to Use this Document
Employers are required by law to give a Certificate of Employment upon the request of a former employee. However, there is no legal requirement as to who signs the Certificate of Employment nor is a period for its release mandated. 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. It is also usually released only after the former employee has been issued a clearance by the employer. Despite not having a mandated time for releasing the Certificate of Employment, employers should not unreasonably delay its release.
