In order for me to qualify for an EB2 position with my current employer, I need to evidence my work experience with my previous employer, but my old employer will not give me an experience verification letter. Can I force them to give one to me?


There is no requirement under immigration law that normally would force a former (or current) employer to provide you with an employer verification letter. However, there may be other options to evidence your previous work experience, such as affidavits from former co-workers.  (13.May.2021)
