The lack and/or inappropriate content of the documents to be handed out upon termination of the employment may result in the employer's liability for damages.

Upon termination of an employment relationship, the employer must provide the employee with a certificate containing the information set forth in Section 98 of the Labour Code (social security number, the length of time spent at the employer, any debt to be deducted from the employee's wages, the amount of sick leave taken by the employee during the year when the employment relationship was terminated, the amount of extra severance pay the employee has received etc). The Supreme Court has confirmed that an employer who fails to comply with this obligation might be liable for damages if proven by the employee that he was unable to engage in new employment due to the lack of the necessary documents.
