Employment background check for EU institution jobs?

I have asked one of my previous employers to provide me with documentation on my previous employment  with them. Since we did not part in good circumstances they refused to give me that document and I would have to go through whole legal process to get it. I had contract psoition with them for 3 years and when working on contract I did not get my pension contributions which I could use to prove the employment. Is there a way for EU institution to check that employment in any way if I give them permissions? I listed that in my resume and I would like for it to be counted torwards my grade.

Also, how long do those cheks

Also, how long do those cheks usually last. Do they have some kind of reporsitory where they can just go and check for any EU citizen or do they have to contact my previous employeer?

I had the same problem as you. In this case they ask for a copy of all the contracts you had with the employer, and copiy of the first and final salaryslip. The salaryslip should also say if you worked fulltime or parttime. Good luck and welcome to the EU family!

This is a little bit of a problem since it was very long time ago so I don`t have those contracts or payslips any more. If I can`t get my previous employeer to give some kind of offical document and EU institution can`t do it`s own research I`ll have to fortefit those 3 years.

Thank you.
