Please do not mention anything on your social media profile in detail which can create curiousity of getting in depth of your past employment.Also not to be mentioned in professional circle.Also ensure with the US firm that they get their records maintained as 1.5 years and not 6 months as your experience for in case if your ex boss leaves then in future BV truth can be traced.Do not feel so guilty.circumstances compel us to behave in ways which might be acceptable.

It is a very difficult situation and only you can take a decision.
I would in your place show only the truth and not take recourse to false experience.
Think carefully introspect, see the papers carefully, consult the agency concerned and then take a decision.
The fact that you feel guilty is a good sign of a person who would like to do no wrong.

Thanks a lot for the reply.
My consultancy will cooperate with the BV, irrespective of my ex-boss being there or not. The only worry I have is of social media. I think I will lose out on lot of potential job opportunities/networking online if I don't create an online presence.
I don't want people to know the name of the consultancy, since its a small company and people can get curious to verify.
What if I mention the name of consultancy's client (MNC) for the 1.6 years and block my team members from the client online?

#AnonymousIf you are worried about Social media - don't bother. Social Media is not a credible source for BG's especially after the Facebook incident. You can pretty much sue the company if they hire agencies that use social media as a credible source. Besides you also have right to your privacy. All in all, social media profile only carries information you have published not what others have published without your permission. No company is stupid enough to loose a good employee taking that into consideration. Nobody has this kind of time to waste.
Why feel guilty about all this? Do you feel that the For Profit Organizations employ people who are 100% ethical? Each day you get to read about people who once passed from top B schools committing frauds that costs many their jobs and careers. And yet shamelessly they start new companies and many will join them for a mere hike of 5% to 15%.
I think you ought to understand you are just doing a job not protecting a nation or saving lives.
Go live your life freely.
