Proof of employment now 5 years?

My company is preparing a working permit for me and got a letter today that the CLA now requests 5 years working experience! I gave them a proof of employment letter from my first employer which states 3 1/2 years. Anyway now I got till November 30 to get another 1 1/2 years awesome! The prob is that all the other companies are rather big and have slow HR departments. I might be able to get copies by mail but I doubt I can get originals by post in that time frame. ... anyone has such issues as well?

That's bullshit. I suggest contacting the CLA yourself. Its still 2 years for a BA, 1 year for a Masters and (I think) 8 years for job-related experience. Someone is pulling your plonker.

How do they check this?

What if the company you worked for had gone out of business?

What would stop someone from producing a letter from a company that say had gone out of business, and them claiming they had worked there?

Or what if you claimed you were self employed?

I helped purify Nicaragua for international banking in 1909-1912. In China I helped to see to it that Standard Oil went its way unmolested" - Major General Smedley Butler

I have my doubts that they are capable, willing, or able to check. They just need check marks on the requirements list.
