Employment letters are handed out to employees for different reasons. Usually, past or present employees need them to apply for a new job. Besides, this kind of letter may be needed to open a bank account or to apply for tenancy.
While not all companies perform this practice, some provide their employees with employment certificates which may also work as reference letters.
Employment certificates usually hold information on employees’ designation and date of joining.
The following is an employment certificate request letter that an employee may write to an HR manager for acquiring the same.

Dear Mr. Harper:
I am writing to request an employment certificate in order to open a bank account.
My three months of probation period has ended on January 15th, and I am now a permanent employee of Creative Solutions which makes me nothing less than being extremely happy. I have been given the designation of an Administrative Assistant.
I was recently asked by your department to open a bank account for the hassle-free transfer of my salary. Upon inquiring from the bank about the procedures of account opening, I was informed that I need to provide them with a copy of my employment certificate which I was supposed to get at the end of my probation period. The bank needs to have some proof of my employment at Creative Solutions and also needs to verify that I will be working here on a permanent basis.
I would appreciate it if you process my employment certificate as soon as possible so that I may work towards opening an account in a time-efficient manner. I would appreciate a prompt action in this regard.
Thank you very much for your time.
