Employment Certificate Templates

An employment certificate is an important document in anyone’s professional life. This is a certification or proof of the fact that one is employed. Employment certificates are to be issued by the employers, which are companies in most of the cases. The employment certificate mentions necessary details about one employee, which includes the time period for which he or she had been employed in that very company. Furthermore, it includes performance details and the conduct of an employee during his or her serving period in that company. Human Resource department of any company upon request of employs issues employment certificates.

Employment certificate is not just a piece of paper that serves as an employment proof in fact it is a really important document that is required for multiple purposes. First of all, if one is applying for a new job, an employment certificate is required to be presented to the new employer as a work experience proof and also to give them a good idea about the performance of one employee in the previous company. Nowadays due to excessive fraudulent cases in the banking sector, banks do not allow loans, large financial value accounts, and credit cards unless there is a proof that one is a legitimate employ and has reasonable income to support such type of financial resources, so employment certificate also comes in handy in such situations.

Another use of employment certificate is where people want to continue their education but some certain courses require prior field experience, so an employment certificate in such cases provides the required criteria of experience. Employment certificates are extensively used in other such cases and also in situations of legal nature or cases pertaining to a court of law. Employment certificates also discuss the conduct of employ so it really is an important document.

Every company has its own employment certificate designed for its employees. This is mostly done by the Human Resource department; people in the Human Resource department can also have it designed from some other professional. However, designing it is not very difficult due to the availability of several computer software applications; one only needs to take care of a few important points:

  • Employment certificates are a little bit detailed, so the best suited and suggested orientation is portrait. This is a common practice observed in most cases.
  • The size of the document is usually standard A4 paper size.
  • Company logo, if any and interested to be included, should be at the top of this certificate. Including a logo makes it more professional looking.
  • The main heading or title should be “Certificate” or “Employment Certificate”.
  • The body of the certificate holds a general employment certification statement where spaces can be left for filling in employees ’ details or they can also be typed in during the issuing of a certificate. Details include name, employment period and dates of issuing the certificate.
  • Try to keep this as simple as possible since it is a formal and official document issued for official purposes.
