Hello,

I am just about ready to submit my Life Partner permit application, and one of the last things I need is the work endorsement letter from my prospective employer.

Does anyone have a template for this? I have no idea what should be included!

Thank you so much for any help.

You need a signed employment contract rather than a letter.

Thank you.
I was looking to include an employment contract as well as an endorsement letter, but am unsure what to include in the latter. I would rather include it than not, to be safe.

I have applied and received three work endorsements. You do not need a letter.

Hi,

Yes the employment contract is essential, but I also included a letter from my employer for good measure, it can't hurt right?

My template used is below, this was given to me by the immigration firm I went through.

As an employer, I would NEVER write or sign that. How will you ensure their departure if something goes wrong?

You do not need this letter, however there is no concern for you as an employee.

I totally agree Legal Man, an employer should never agree to sign such a letter. The legal implications are too many to count.
