What Is the Difference Between a Certificate of Employment and a Reference Letter?

The certificate of employment must only contain the following information: the duration of the employment and the descriptive nature of the employment relationship. By law, the employer must provide this document to any employee upon request.

On the contrary, the employer is not required by law to provide a reference letter upon request. The reference letter has a broader scope and may also include qualitative information about the work of the employee.
