I've got a new job coming right up. Only thing is, my former employer could not give me my COE.
I've emailed them, texted them, Skyped them that I need it soon. I've also been very clear, that I can wait for my back pay. I told them I just need my COE first.
However, same as last time with my salary, they are not responding to my messages. My calls could not reach their numbers.
Having a COE isn't really required to apply for a company if you just resigned from the last one.
All of us former employees have this problem with our sad excuse of a boss. Not just me.
I don't understand. How could an employer not be able to print and sign some documents? If they're planning to tell everyone I've never been employed by them they're gonna have a hard time explaining that because I have internal knowledge of their projects, my colleagues have given me their references, and my prospective employers believe us.
The alternative is I don't declare my experience with my former employer. I can't remove my experience with them from my resume, however, because that will leave a five month gap in my resume.
How do I approach the situation please?
