  • name, address, and phone number of your employer
  • the location where you actually worked (this may be different from the employer’s official address)
  • your manager’s or the company owner’s name and phone number
  • a description of the type of work you did or do for the employer
  • pay stubs or wage statements showing how, when, and how much you were paid for the period in question, and
