Sometimes in life we might have to take calculated risk if it benefits someone. However, while providing help to someone out of way, underlying factor of trust matters lot. Your help should not boom rang on you. Otherwise, situation could tantamount to a proverb "Aa bail mujze maar".
Since the ex-employee is beseeching you, rather than handling the matter on your own, you may defer it to your MD's office. Let your MD take a decision on whether to issue backdated service-cum-employment certificate or not.
It is not a question of employment certificate alone. What if his future company asks for the salary details for the period for which employee did not work? What if the future company asks for the bank statement? In that case you will have to provide the fake the salary slips also.
Therefore, please take the call judiciously.

1. Produce acknowledged copy of his resignation.
2. Copy of appointment letter
3. Copies of salary slips
4. Bank Statement (salary account)
5. PF Account Statement.
If he could produced the above documents and he has officially resigned the company, he has to justify his case during the interview and convince them. He can very well inform that the employer is not providing him any relieving letter because they wanted him to continue in their services.
We do not know under what circumstances he had left the job whether with resignation or absconded.
If you provide him 2 years experience certificate, first you look for another job because some organisations does employment verification by sending letters by post, courier etc. If such letters received by in any of Senior Management with your signature, you will be "REWARDED'.
Secondly there is risk of demand of salary for 1 1/2 year salary payment which is unpaid as per the certificate.
So All The Very Best. Because HR means High Risk for you.
