Prev company closed. background check - offer letter.. CiteHR

linktogg Started The Discussion:


I've worked with 2 different companies.

The first company( a small company) I've worked for about 2 years, and 4.5 years with the next (a major company).

Now i am shifting to a new company, but the first company I worked for has been closed down about 4.5years ago(just after i left).

Unfortunately, for the first company I only have the Offer letter, resignation acceptance and relieving letter. I don't have payslips or the bank statements cos the bank account is closed now.

Will there be problem during background verification with the new company I m about join.

Please advice.

How would they verify for the 1st company... would they ask me for any references... the only only person I remember his number has changed....

no person will ask references from first employement unless he/she is stupid fool. Just act silent and dont tell anyone that the first company closed down. If they tell you that no one is at that place tell you are unaware but you worked there some years ago.

Even now the ponds factory at pallavaram chennai has closed down long time back but still so many people know that the ponds factory existed. Many people will know about the company.. and it is left to the smartness of HR to verify whether its true or not.

I have worked 3years in BPO, out of which 2yrs in HSBC EDPI, Kolkata & prior to HSBC, I was in Desconsoft for 15months, which had shut down.. Now, m questions are-
i) Do TCS verify an employee before joining or after joining?
ii) As the last to last company has shut down, how will TCS verify it (I have all the pay slips, appointment letter & stamped resignation letter.)? If they can not verify because the company has shut down, what effect will it have on me?
iii) I have the numbers of the senior managers of Desconsoft, so will that help in verifying my last to last employment?

[Please, it's very urgent.. Because Dell Hyderabad said they couldn't verify it.. So, please help me if someone knows the procedures of TCS..]
