I recently joined XYZ company after resigning from ABC company, and I have submitted documents for Background verification for XYZ. But, I didn't receive previous company's relieving letter. Now my HR of XYZ noticed it and is asking me to submit as early as possible.

I came to know that previous company's relieving letter may take 3-4 weeks to get generated. Meanwhile, I submitted my resignation acceptance email of ABC company to my current HR. But, there is still no response from my current HR.

What should I do if there is 3-4 weeks delay for previous company's relieving letter?

  • How do you came to know about this delay? Did ABC told you that via email or similar?

    @DarkCygnus I came to know from resigned employees from ABC.

    Does this answer your question? What is a relieving letter? What are the consequences of not having one?

    Although the linked question is related (relieving letters) and recommended reading, it does not answer the question OP asked at all... @gnat

If there is a 3-4 weeks delay, then that would be "as early as possible" given the circumstances and internal ABC's processes.

What I suggest is that you inform XYZ's HR about this 3-4 week time frame, so they are aware of that and everything is clear for both parts.

  • Do you think that this 3-4 week time frame is too late to submit docs for BGV?

  • @TimJack IMHO it does seem like a longer-than-I-would-expect time for a document, although I don't know what is the average time for a relieving letter to be generated... however, what I think is irrelevant as that 3-4week frame is a fact, and I can't change their processes and times, and besides, those times surely depend on the size of company ABC, their efficiency, etc...
