I didn't like my job anymore and left the company in 2006 after 2 years. The CEO took that personally. He probably still holds a grudge, 13 years later. I emailed the generic info@ company address and asked for a certificate of employment, but did not receive an answer.
Before I follow up by phone: am I entitled to a simple letter that says "Robert was employed as a X at COMPANY from START DATE to LEAVE DATE"?
This is in Texas in the US.
Edit on reason: I'd need this letter for proof with social security / Rentenversicherung in Germany. I could try to show my employment from the paystubs, but a simple letter would be easier.
