No, because you are not employed... You are a freelancer.
If you go to "Reports" then "More Reports" then scroll dowm and click on "Certificate of Earnings" you'll be able to download that, but it is not a certificate of employment. You do not work for Upwork, you work for yourself!
Is it possible to get a certificate of employment in Upwork or in this case certificate of Earnings from the day I started working back when its in Odesk? meaning all of my earnings from the day I signed up and work as a freelancer
Unfortunately, the Certificate of Earnings can only be generated for last 12 months maximum. You can add other reports as a proof of your income such as Transaction History and Lifetime Billings by Client.
I'm afraid we don't a "Certificate of Employment" for users on Upwork, because you are a freelancer that's using the Upwork platform to find work.
You do have access to a "Certificate of Earnings", which shows your earnings on Upwork for the last 12 months. You can find this document by going to your Reports tab > More Reports > scroll down to Certificate of Earnings (downloaded once clicked).
Do any of your civic, provincial, or national authorities offer ways to register yourself as a business, so that you can certify your self-employment?
