Employment Verification and gap ?

Any thoughts on this situation would be appreciated! Almost a year ago (middle June, not sure of the exact day) my husband was passed over for a promotion at his job and had some old issues with the new manager (long story, guy was a loose cannon) chosen so basically he was let go in favor of the new manager (who by the way lasted less than 2 month with the company)

 

He started at his new position in mid July. He was supposed to have started earlier, but his boss had to travel for business and delayed his start a few days. The offer letter was extended to him within the 30 day time frame.

 

Now, here's my ?...when he was "let go" he was actually paid through early July due to vacation time and a 2 week severance...when they call to verify his employment with the old company any idea what date they are going to give in terms of his employment length there? It's literally a matter of 2 days over a 30 day gap if they go by he date he was actually let go from company a, and the day he techincally started with company B....but he was paid by company A until a few days before he actually started with company B.

 

I suspect that a letter that his employment was delayed starting at company B due to his boss traveling would be sufficient, but I'm trying to determine if there will be any challenges. Company A is a large fortune 500 company, so I believe his employment will be verified with their corporate HQ's. No one even works in the branch he was in who was there when he was there currently....so 'm wondering if they just go by the paid through date?

They will likely go by whatever HR states... I have to take a leave every 2 years, but its considered a furlough and my anniversary date never changed.

 

My guess, is they will use the Jul date as his anniversary date, not his previous date... just a guess tho.. I am basing this due to how he left and came back, sounds like he was let go, and then brought back a month later, not a 'scheduled' kind of furlough

 

Just have DH call HR and find out his anniversary date

Re: Employment Verification and gap ?

Thank you. I just firmed up the exact dates, and it's literally 29 days from the last day he worked at the old position and the day he started the new one. I still think they'd go by the time he was paid through anyways...but I can breathe again now.

Re: Employment Verification and gap ?

If that is the only gap in employment an LOE should suffice if it's even necessary.  Really shouldn't be a red flag.  I know when I was laid off from the state, my term date was on record with personnel from whatever the department put down and from my own HR experience, that is what is kept in an employee file and the information that is pulled.  But really, considering the state of the economy the last few years... 29 days shouldn't be an issue. Not to mention that he obtained a position so quickly.  Now was he hired and then his start date postponed?  or was he not "hired" until his first day.  Hiring dates are often different than one's actual first day.  Which means that even though he wasn't working and earning anything, he was technically employed. :smileywink: But still... I really don't even think it will matter any more than a LOE.

Re: Employment Verification and gap ?

Yes. I have a copy of his offer letter which is dated 10 days before he actually started. He was offered the job 19 days after the last day he actually worked, but he was still techincally paid from the first company through the time the offer was made from the second.
