Is it possible to get a certificate of employment from Upwork? For legal purposes.

 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!

Hi Abbygale,

 

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.

Hi Mellisa,

 

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).

Melissa,

 

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?

 

Good luck,

Michael
