Relieving Letter By The Employer Is Propety Of Employee Not Prospective Employer Who Recruit Employee. Its Varification Process Of Ensuring Relieving Of Employee From The Committment Of Employment And Employees Has No Liability Towards His Past Employer.
You Must Return Original Retainign Xerox Copy To Concern Employee.

you do not have any right to keep the releiving letter given by the previous employer. At the most you should have verified it with and should have collected xerox copy of the same. Immediately return the same as its no use for you and always for reference you can have the xerox copy of the same. Return back .
The relieving letter is for the employee only which is for his records. The Employee is joining some other company/Employer, he has to submit a photocopy of the same alongwith his resume for showing his past experience.

Thank you for all your suggestion ,but according to my knowledge is concerned Release letter of the previous employer is only accepted by the Company he is joining so later on when he leaves our Company he can take our release letter and show to his next Company.
Please suggest if I am wrong.

Daer P Chatterjee,
You are wrong....don't keep with you the original releaving letter of the employee, for HR reference you can ask for photo copy. The employee should have all the releaving letters with him for his future reference...

Dear Friend:
Please give weightage to a certificate produced by any employee. Original certificates are obviously required for verification which need to be produced when they approach an other company for employment.
In certain companies mostly MNC's they would like to make sure whether an employee joins them has been properly relived by his previous employers please note previous employers. Hence, this certificate is vital for the employee. Obviously it is not useful to you when an employee leaves you. So please give it back. The same rule applies when you hunt for an other job. Hope I am clear.

u want to hear people say that it is ok to keep the reliving letter but sadly rule permits otherwise so return it back
if they want it you can give thier original relieving letter of previous org. after you had done all the background verfication there is no need of keeping original relieving letter of previous org with you.

Releiving letter is only required for verification purposes. It is the property of the employee and not the prospective employer. It is advisable to handover the photocopy of the relieving letter to the employee and keep the original with yourself.
