My current employer stopped returning my calls and emails after I gave notice

And I still need to pass background check. I even can't get the most recent paystub from their accounting company to send to Hireright.
What can I do?
This is obviously not Google , I'm a TVC via some company there.

I sent w2 for previous years, the oldest paystub and most recent paystub I have which is 07/2019, and wrote to the background checking company asking them to proceed without further contacting the employer

    Yikes!
    Always wait for final confirmation before giving notice!

      They were actually very friendly last time we spoke. I know, I know...

    I think it might actually be illegal for them not to provide proof of employment.

    Contact an employment attorney.

      No use in the short - medium term. All employers know H1B workers are helpless and many of them misuse their vulnerability

    Does the company you work for use ADP? TheWorkNumber? Do you have last years W4? Does your direct deposit list the company name?

      The direct deposit shows their name

      If you have an issue with them responding take a copy of your deposits with the company name and offer it to HireRight. Obviously you wouldn’t have ongoing deposits if you weren’t working there.

      And your W4 - it’s where you set your withholding for the year. It’ll have the employer name and information on it as proof you worked there.

      That SHOULD be good enough. Good luck!

      It's proof of employment, requested by the background checking company, they asked to black out any payment/personal data

      I see. Thanks for clarifying. Can you not send W2?

      You can if your employer is ready to confirm your employment by phone when being contacted. Mine isn't.

    It happened to me before, at the end the background verification company moved on without marking it as negative.

      Did your next employer accepted the results?

      Yes. Anything not negative is good. Everyone knows about how consulting companies work.
