1 You can use your testimony if you are a credible witness, this can prove the employer-employee relationship.
2 Check- or paystubs if you were paid by them, you should have a record of it, and being paid will establish employment. This applies also to records of direct deposit.
3 Testimony by  co-workers, who can testify you worked there.
4 Security records from the building, if applicable, which may show you entered there so regularly as to be an employee.
5 Emails or other correspondence from the empoyer to you. This includes text messages.
6 Testimony from customers or clients who know you worked for this employer.
