The employment verification letter should be original and printed on company letterhead. The letter should be signed by your supervisor or human resource person and should include a contact phone number.
The letter should state the following: starting date with the company, current employment status (full time, part time, contract, etc.), position title, annual salary or hourly wage. If you are paid by the hour, convert to annual salary.
