Ofcourse, you are entitled to ask/request for a certificate of employment, despite that you already received your separation pay by reason of retrenchment. That CEO will certify only that you were previously working in that company.

As to the 13th month pay, I THINK(in my opinion lang po)you can no longer ask for that because i believed that after you received your separation pay, the company let you sign a quit claim or waiver for any future claim against the company.(am i right?)

also, that 13th month pay issue must be question from the time you are an active employee of that company, that is, before you were retrenched.

But you can seek for any 2nd opinion or advice here, based on that facts presented.
