Experience letter Experience letter

I joined my company without an offer letter and worked for 15 months as a trainee after which I joined as a permanent employee. Now my company is completely refusing to give any document/proof of my training period. What shall I do?

A.Look at the company's standing orders, employee manual, human resource policy book, etc. All such policies should be kept within the reach and knowledge of the employee. If these policies are not available with you then you can ask for them and try to get them from a coworker also. If according to the rules of your company there is a rule to give experience certificate and they do not give then you can take legal action against them, but if you need a lot of experience certificate. If an officer refuses to give experience certificate then you can request it from the senior officer. If you take any legal action, then you should also think that after the legal proceedings, you will not be able to work in that company easily.

A.Hello,
Firstly, send them a letter/mail requesting for the experience certificate which you are entitled to and set a time frame of 14 days for the receiving of the same.

If he doesn’t reply or comply with your request you send him a legal notice requesting the same. I wish to convey to that most of the employers avoid going courts as they really know that they are guilty. So most of the employers grant the experience certificate as early as possible. If some employer is not budging to even for the legal notice then you can move to the labor department or file a complaint under the relevant sections of labor laws.

You can also file a civil lawsuit in courts. There are quite a few options to protect employees from harasments and abuses.

A.Dear client, it is possible that you may have some correspondence, a mail, or any message which suggests that you were a part of the company. If not, you may have to consult the higher authorities/management of the company for granting you the Experience Certificate.
