Employment Forms are the forms used for an employment application, otherwise known as a job application. This is where an applicant fills out necessary information as part of the employment process. Through these forms, the applicant states his desire and availability to be employed, and persuades the employer to offer the applicant employment.

An Employment Certificate is an essential part of the employment relationship and should be delivered to each employee upon termination of their employment contract. It is also used in schools and other organizations as an authorization for a child of school age or an individual to work at a job paying wages or salary.

Shown below are a few Employment Certificate Forms that you can download for your employees.

For a situation in which an individual works for himself instead of an employer, Self-Employment Forms will most definitely be needed. These forms are used in the event an individual earns his own income through conducting profitable operations from a business that he is directly operating. Generally, self-employed individuals include independent contractors, sole proprietors of businesses, and those with partnerships in business.

Importance of Employment Certificates

Once the employment relationship has been terminated, the employee is entitled to receive, on request, a written Certificate of Employment. The Employment Contracts Act specifies what information the employer may include in the certificate of employment. Neglecting to issue a Certificate of Employment is a punishable offence. The employee may also request for a brief or extended certificate of employment with the following contents:

For Brief Certificate:

  • Total duration of the employment relationship
  • Job duties

For Extended Certificate:

  • Total duration of the employment relationship
  • Job duties
  • Reason for termination
  • Testimonial

A Certificate of Employment, even if requested later, must be issued on request, unless to do so would be unreasonably difficult for the employer. A Certificate of Employment must be issued without too much delay. The employee may choose to decide whether to include both the reason for termination and the testimonial or only either of them on the extended Certificate of Employment.

Employment Verification Forms are the forms used to verify the eligibility and past work history of current or potential employees. Employers often verify employees prior to hiring or promoting them, to certify that the employee’s employment history, educational background, and other details match the information that has been provided by the employee.

How to Get Your Employment Certificate

If you wish to receive your Employment Certificate when your employment relationship ends, you must request one from your employer. Your employer is not required to issue you a Certificate of Employment at his own free will. Remember to state clearly to your employer which contents you want to indicate in your certificate. Usually when an unemployed job hunter registers at the Employment and Economic Development Office, the officials usually want to know the reason behind termination and who terminated it before assessing the job hunter’s entitlement to unemployment benefits.

You can verbally request for a Certificate of Employment, but you may also submit the request in writing or by email for visual confirmation if necessary that you have requested a Certificate of Employment. For submitting a written request, you can download and use some of the examples shown above.
