Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today.
Even though you may have paid for the training, as the employer is the one named on the certificate they would still have the right to request it if necessary, even following the termination of their employment. However, there is no obligation on you to retain these certificates once the employee has left so if you have actually destroyed them then there is not much you can do and can suggest that they contact the training provider to obtain a copy themselves. Regardless of the above, there is no specific legislation that deals with this issue and this is the most common way of dealing with this.
Thank you very much!
