reference letters for work


I would like to know two things :
1 . Do I need to mention how much I have earned in those work reference letters?
2. Is that ok if my senior signed for my current reference letter because i can't ask my boss to sign for this migration process.

Please help me answer.

1. Mention to whom?
If for migration points, it is a good idea to show that you were being paid the usual wage for your role, to establish that you were not an unpaid volunteer or in a 'manufactured' position and 'they' might well (probably will) want to see taxation records in any case. Some skills assessing authorities accept voluntary work, but the DIBP does not count it for points.

2. Usually OK.

Yes, the reference letter needs to indicate your salary, along with your position/job name, duties and responsibilities, and period of work at that company. Nevertheless, you also need to prepare salary checks or receipts (any sort of evidence) from both the company and a third party organization (such as tax or pensions).

I don't know what the difference between senior and boss is, but anyone in the manager/senior position will be okay.
