Unable to obtain employment reference letter from my current company

Hi All,

My company policy does not allow to provide any such reference letter. In this case, ACS has suggested to get a Statutory Declaration.

My question is, what should be the format of Statutory Declaration? Can anyone share it please?

As far as I know, the content can be the same as the reference letter.

This was taken from the Employment FAQs document from ACS:

I cannot provide a reference from my employer. Will you accept anything else?
If an applicant is unable to obtain an employment reference on a Company letterhead from an employer, an applicant may submit a third party Statutory Declaration from a work colleague.
Acceptance of statutory declarations in place of employment references will be subject to the verification and discretion of the skills assessor and noted to DIAC for authentication against fraud and plagiarism.
Important Note: Self-written statements submitted as a statutory declaration cannot be assessed. Self-references from applicants in the form of a statutory declaration cannot be accepted as evidence of employment. Statutory Declarations must be from a third party work colleague and signed by an authorised witness to be accepted for assessment.
A Statutory Declaration from a work colleague needs to describe the working relationship with the applicant and supply details of the applicant’s duties performed with relevant dates of employment. It is preferable that the work colleague providing the statutory declaration be at a supervisory level.

Thanks for the reply. Do my supervisor need to be present in front of Notary to sign it? or can i just take his signature and go to Notary?

In my case, no need. I just brought the original to prove that the copy I am having notarized is indeed a copy of the original.
