Hi!  Has anybody had problems going back to a former employer and asking him to sign off on your work experience?  I am not done with my exams but have worked in public accounting for 3 years and am about the leave the firm but I want to be able to come back to the employer and ask him to sign off on my work experience.  Is that possible?  Does the former employer have a right to not sign off on my work experience?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks!

They can refuse to sign, but they have to write a letter explaining why. I am in the situation where I cannot get my license only because my employer didn't like me anymore, and won't sign it, and is lying to the CPA board about what my job entailed. I passed my tests months ago, but my last boss decided to be a b***h and go back on her word.

If the supervisors are actively licensed CPAs, they cannot refuse to sign off on your experience. I would report them to the Board of Accountancy. Sing like a canary.

I have the Florida work experience form, and I have a question.  Is it possible to work 6 months for one employer, 6 for another and combine them?  Surely I cant be the only person in this type of a situation.

Inorder for an employer to sign off on experience do they have to be CPA's. My current supervisor and dept manager are not CPAs. I am in internal audit and I know the corporate audit department's manager is a CPA but my manager now just doesnt like me and I doubt that he would put in a good word for me. After all that we go through in taking this exam you would think that everything after that would get easier but it does not.
