Default company references

two questions,

I am self employed at present and have been for nearly 3 years, will
this be an issue?

One of my previous employers has gone bust, so I won't be able to get
a reference from them. What should I do about that?

Yes, it may become a serious issue if you can't document that you have
required skilled work experience in years claimed.

Nothing wrong with being self-employed - but you must document that you
worked as such full time (if you claim those years as full time) and that
you performed duties of claimed skilled occupation.

I have enought experience without that particular company (it was for
a grand total of about 6 months). I was just worried about it looking
suspicious that there was no reference from them. I worked under the
same manager at my next employers, so she could maybe vouch for me
there. As for the current self employement situation, I work through
a couple of different agencies so I suppose that I could get
references from them? Sorry to go on but you did make the mistake of
answering me!!!!

You must explain why you don't have reference letter for particular
employment and provide some substitute evidence - statement from former
co-workers, managers, etc.

As far as your self-employment goes - agencies cannot verify your duties, it
must be employers you worked for who need to do it.

Mr. Andrew Miller,
I have similar questions about self employment.

Will a [self] Employeed Identification Number (EIN) is also known as a
federal tax identification number, local tax numbers from my state,
and evidence of corporation establishment by state and FTC(LLP,
Inc,corp, etc.) be sufficient?

As being self employed, I have to provide "subtitutive evidence" which
could presumably be contract job agreement from clients, monthly
progress reports, etc. , don't I?
Most of those documents are confidential. I signed non-disclosure
agreement with clients. How do I work around it (releasing them to CIC
without going through legal consequences)?
I don't want to lose clients or get slapped with lawsuits.
Can I just go by "Don't ask, don't tell" avenue to my clients?

Thank You in advance.

No. it won't. It will only prove the fact that you have registered a
business or obtained tax ID, not that you worked and not that you have
experience in claimed occupation(s). You need to prove that in claimed
periods you performed duties as per NOC description for specific occupation
and you must also document full or part time work (number of hours per week)
as well as your salary (earnings).

You should obtain reference letters from all your clients for claimed
period - contracts alone won't prove anything as it is unknown if you worked
and completed the contract as agreed.
