Dear Sunil
I completely agree with (Cite Contribution) on the DOCUMENTS required and AREAS OF ACTION in case a change in her SURNAME is involved.
However, do remember the following points :
  • Let the employee produce the documents at ease and her convenience (as many of the documents will take time)
  • A good HR need not act too bureaucratic nor force the employee to submit the documents immediately.
This is the time when the concerned employee goes through a lot of life-changes and may feel stressed. HR deptt. should deal with the issues in a sensitive manner.
Also, please note that if the employee prefers to retain her maiden name (there is an increasing trend), then the documentation reduces to that extent.
With reference to nominations in relevant documents, please be informed that in the absence of any change in nomination; the surviving spouse is considered the legal heir (therefore, the nomination is deemed to have been done in favour of the spouse).
Warm regards.

Do you collect information from a male employee after his marriage? The situation must be the same for a female employee as well.

Hello Everyone,
I think the above details are more exacting than what a bank or a passport office may require. Its a woman's choice whether she wants to go with her married name. However, with such strictures and demands in place, the choice to change name seems the hardest to choose.
Besides demanding an address proof is quite discriminatory, since I doubt if any employee is obligated to provide address proof if one moves into a new house.
To be just and fair, a written signed declaration is all what requires and matters to announce and declare the change of name unless we are banking or passport officials.

Dear Saj,
I agree with the freedom and discretionary of the employee to declare the marital status . However, The challenge lies in nomination for PF , Gratuity and other benefit where the spouse or the children are the first option.
Further more availing mediclaim policy will also require the employee to declare the status, specially when she might want to avail it for her children.
In case the employee wants to keep it private, discussing it with the HR might help. I managed a case where my employee was going through a divorce , hence wanted to keep it under the wraps.
We processed all the benefits for her child , but kept the status single as requested by her. It remained a secret and wasn't ever discussed even with her reporting manager.
Hope this helps !
