Hi,

Here is my friend's situation. She worked in small company for 14 months Starting from July 2012. She then became pregnant and went out of India for 6 months along with her husband. She came back and then was at home due to maternity leaves for 12 months. So total 18 months gap.
She again joined same company one week back. Since its small company, her employer is ready to give her experience certificate showing joining date of July 2012 and relieving date of Jan 2015. She got selected in BIG Indian MNC. This company do very strict background checks. Her salary is increased from 3K to 35K/month.

My question: If current employer is ready to give experience certificate and if they will give same details to background check agencies, is there anything of which my friend should be worried?
She has her own house and staying there since december 2014. Will company ask to furnish her addresses before December?

Company will know that she was out of country for 6 months from her passport but she can tell that it was due to maternity leave. Anything to worry about fake experience but done with help of employer?

Welcome to the Ranch

Please don't post the same thing thrice. I have deleted the other two occurrences.
I think that post merits a new discussion so shall take the liberty of splitting it from this thread.

In my opinion, what does it matter if the certificate is wrong -- isn't your friend perpetuating the mistake?

Also, the first company takes back your friend after 18 months, and she leaves after a week? I am assuming she was accepted back because one of her professional network contacts vouched for her. Leaving after a week is pretty bad in my opinion. Again, this is my opinion only.

Well, I'm no lawyer, but I think the key word here is "fake".

It's not clear from your description, but it sounds like:

  • Your friend has 14 months of work experience with this company but she's going to claim 32 months i.e. more than twice as much?
  • She has no experience at all in the last 18 months, but she's going to claim she was working the whole time?

  • And she's doing all this to get a massive pay increase.

    So she wants to tell a bunch of lies for money. Where I come from that would probably count as fraud.

    If the big company's checks are thorough, they may find out she's been lying, and they won't be happy. Also, some employers check addreses via various data sources to check things like credit ratings (nobody wants to employ a crook). If somebody tries to hide 18 months of their life in this way, most employers are going to be very suspicious. I would think that most reputable employers would be likely fire this employee on the spot and quite possibly take legal action.

    Tell your friend to get a good lawyer.
     
    Oh sure, it's a tiny ad, but under the right circumstances, it gets bigger.
