What is a Work Certificate

A work experience certificate - also named as an employee experience letter - is an compulsory document given by the employer to the employee upon expiration of their contract of employment and which are mentioned identity of the parties, the date of entry and exit of the employee and the nature of employment which has played. The certificate must be signed by the employer.

So it's a document that proves the employment relationship of a worker and company.

Usually the work certificate must be delivered within 48 hours after completing the labor contract between the employer and employee in a mandatory manner.

Why an employee request a work experience letter?

The work certificates are normally requested from the companies by their interested workers. These are usually very useful for people as they are a simple way to show that their work situation is stable. In a work record the director of the company assures that the interested person works in that company and mentions his date of entry to it.

This type of records are usually very useful for carrying out bureaucratic procedures such as the issuance of migration documents (visas), or for the application of some credit
