Hi All, I am recently got rejected due to bad feedback from my past company.
I worked there near about a year without any leaves and weekends off. I notice them as per company policy and I had to extend my support post my notice period upon request. Even after I got released, I extend my help for few weeks upon request under closed doors.
Few years after when I requested them to respond for background check it seems they recommend me for not fit for hire. I asked for the explanation but it seems they are not interested to take my calls.
I am not sure what should I do in this current position. Any help would be highly appreciated.

Dear friend,
Whenever you raise questions on matters pertaining to purely subjective considerations of a particular ex employer culminating in negative impact on his past-employee's later career elsewhere, I think you should avoid giving factual information in bits and pieces. It is discernible from your narrative your separation from the said organization was a proper and peaceful resignation on your own and after few years only you had to request that ex employer to respond to the feed back query from the prospective employer. This gives rise to some inevitable but pertinent questions like what were you doing in the interregnum, were you employed elsewhere soon after your exit, if so any feed back was sought from the ex employer and whether any positive feed back was given by them or the rescinded offer was the only next job you applied for after your exit and the like.
I am unable to think that a cryptic remarks that you were not fit for hire by the ex employer would have influenced the prospective employer's decision.There must be something substantial which you only can clarify. During your tenure, whether you were pulled up by the ex employer regarding any performance or behavior related issues?
Only your frank and immediate response will enable anyone to continue the discussion positively further.

Hi Umakanthan,
Thank you for your quick response. I really appreciate the points you brought here. Here are my answers:
1. Yes, post completion of my duty, I move into new organization. I currently work in the same organization and got promoted as well. So, this year I wanted to move out with a better opportunity, hence the background check triggered.

2. During my tenure, ex-employer did not bring any performance issues or behavioral issues . Even, they sent out appreciation mail that they received from client. Unfortunately, I do not have their copy as those were in my official email. Even, few days before of my last day, employer offer me a rise on immediate basis which I rejected politely. This offer was made on mobile messages. I turned them down politely. I still have these messages with me.
3. I resigned them with a personal reason, rather than disclosing them about my new opportunity. I am not sure if that has anything to do with this.
4. When I agreed to extend my help, we both agreed to sign a temporary contract. But that contract never came. So, after few weeks I stopped helping them with the work to carry forward.
5. However, during notice period I did my best and transfer all the work I have to the existing team members. I heard, through unofficial source that they could not able to carry forward the project after I left the organization. So, in background check they claim, they found mistake in my work. But, everything I have done has approval of all and approval of client.
Recently, I approached them to understand what went wrong with my employment. But, it seems they are not picking up my calls and not replying to my mail. I am here looking for a mutual solution rather than going through legal activity. I am just starting my career and I do not want any issue that might affect my career in the long run.
