Default Mr.Andrew Miller Please advise !

Hi Mr.Miller
I am Pal.I appreciate you for spending your valuable time giving
responses to questions posted here. Here is my story:

Applied: April 26th,2003 to Buffalo
Initial Assessment : Recvd. April 1st, 2004.

In my assessment they have asked for a few documents within 90
days.They ask for:

1. Updated Certified True copies of letters of reference from my
current employer and past employer.
2. Current W-2 Form.

My problem is I am not working now.Hence I do not have W-2 and letter
of reference my current employer.I am a graduate student from India. I
just graduated last month and I will start working from this month or
next month.
I have worked here in the US before becoming a student.But my past
employer does not issue reference letters to their employers as a
matter of company policy.

Can I write CIC a write a letter explaining my situation and attach my
past employers H1B visa and past W-2s and tell them that I can submit
my employment details once I start working?. Please give me some
advice.

Thank you
Sincerely
-Pal

Your past employer does not give out reference letters as a matter of company policy?? You can at least get an attestation letter to say you worked there. They cannot deny you proof you worked there.

This is becoming more and more common procedure for larger companies.
Rather than denying references for poor employees (and then getting sued for
discrimination), employers don't give any references. Of course, a less
than stellar reference could result in a law suit as well.

Most employers (larger ones, at least) will say no more than "he worked
here from this date to this date and this is what he did".

Pal,
Here is my question, if you were not working in US, what status you
were staying in US? Mind you, if you were out out status in US, it
could affect your Canadian Immigration process also.
For the last employer exp letter, you can send your offer letter as a
proof. Also send them your proof of current status in US.

Hi Pprodigy346
Thanks for your response.
Yep.My past employer does not issue any letter whatsoever as a matter
of policy.Its a huge Fortune 500 company.They gave me an 800 number
which people can check to see if I worked there.I am gonna attach that
and old W-2s.
