Importance of Releaving & Experience Letter

Hi,

Its a very unsual topic, but yeah I think I need to take view from you guys.

If a person is working with a company for around 2-3 years and quits the company without getting proper releaving and experience letter but he has the pay stubs and certain other documents as the increment letter which states he was the employee till the last month he worked.

What all can be the consequences of this. I mean in getting Visa's in future or getting job in top Companies or whatever.

Do give ur personal views on this.

Cheers,

Relieving letters and experience letters are VERY important in the visa process / GC processing / and future career changes.

And I would strongly encourage giving adequate notice to the employer, and proper hand-over of tasks/knowledge transfer etc.

These are important not only for the benefit of the employee (in terms of future references, employments etc), but, anybody who considers himself to be a professional, with good ethics, owes to himself and his employer to make as smooth an exit as possible.

My personal opinion!

Kayal,

Even I agree to you. but If you give proper notice and then too you don't get the relieving and proper clearances because you are in a service agreement with the company. Then how would you react ?

Any more opinions Guys !

Rahul

Well, if it was a service agreement that you were aware of before joining, then I would ask you, why did you join?
If you joined, because you were desperate for a job, then you ought to honor the agreement, or pay whatever is required for breaking the contract.
This is what I did when I wanted to leave my first job at a big company. And you know, I am glad I did, because guess who joined as the project manager at my subsequent job? the same PM I was reporting to at the older job. It's a small world, I see familiar faces over and over again, and I think it's good to make friends as you progress in your career, not enemies.

Ok, isn't there any kind of clause in the service agreement that you signed that lets you break it?

There would typically be some kind of financial compensation claimed by the employer.

How have others in your position at your employment dealt with a situation like this? Yours is not an unique case, I would think.

Kayal,

Yeah, Its not me alone but other who were in my situation have left the company without the clearances.

And yeah regarding the clause there is no clause which i can pass by and get free from the agreement because the compensation to be paid in liue is too high arnd my 12 month salary.

Cheers,
Rahul

If you absolutely cannot wait it out, then, I dont know, you might just have to do without the experience letters.

But I do know that it is required in the H1 visa process, and the GC process. I am not quite sure how the INS will handle lack of certificates that prove your employment. You will need to talk to an attorney about it. I can suggest sheila murthy. They have an open chat session every monday and you can ask a question for free.

Other than the visa/gc process, as your career progresses, experience letters for the oldest employments slowly start losing value.
Atleast, this has been my experience. Hope that helps.

Thanks a lot kayal, But as per my knowledge my employment can be validated by the appointment letter as well as the last pay stubs i will be having from the company.

Even I have the letter from the company which states that I am working as an employee of the company.

Any more suggestions you would like to give.

Cheers,
Rahul

What problems could one face (in VISA or anywhere),if he does not shows the experience of the company for which he has no relieving letter.
