My friend resigned over email. The resignation was accepted. But he did not complete any exit formality (handing over, no dues etc) as he was not well. He had worked only for one month and the probation was for 6 months.
After six months after resignation, he received F&F from company - cover letter, calculations and cheque. Does it mean that there is no problem for him from the company any more? F&F is settled but they have not issued relieving letter. Since he is going to study, he doesn't also require it.
The company still seems to try to contact him. I dont know why. Pl let me know.
Thanks in advance

Hi Divya,
Since the company has done all the formalities without any hassle, it means there is no objection from their side.
Trying to contact him even after he has resigned only means that maybe they liked him as an asset or maybe there was some formality left. He can respond and check with them what is it regarding.
Your friend can feel free and go ahead for his higher studies without any worries.

Divya as such i dont see any problem. But it is better if he gets every thing done in a formal manner. Morning shows the day so it is better if he follows the rules even if he has worked for only one month, as he is going to undergo the same circumstances one day again. See majority of the companies would not consider or would avoid any further interactions to communicate in such cases, as of yours, but it is better if he or she gets along with the requisite of the policies for which the concerned department is still trying to reach your friend.

hi as the f n f was done and due paid by co, there is reason he should be worried and his tenure is very short, nothing to worry, let him understand what for the call is and appropriately act.

Thanks a lot for your responses. I still have a nagging doubt. Will they want him to still do the handover and all that (since they have not sent the relieving letter)? Is settling F&F really the final thing from a company?

Dear Divya,
Relieving letter will be issued to the employees who have completed all the formalities and has done the handing over properly...
If your friend is not interested to get one.. then why are you bothered about that...??8)

Company is still trying to contact him; is it because they want him to complete exit formalities, ie no dues etc. after settling f&f? That is the doubt.

Just try and contact them as to what exactly they want... If you are not interested in taking the relieving letter.. I think you can talk to them and ask as to what they require? I think there is nothing to worry even if they say you have to complete the exit formalities...You doing it or not doing it will be secondary.. 8)

So it is possible that companies can still pursue someone to complete exit formalities even after settling F&F. I thought F&F was the real final thing. Thanks Bhargavi

Hi Divya,
As of now everything will be just an assumption. Since, it was just for a month that your friend worked there so this wont have any impact on his future, plus his full n final is already done. So, technically he is relieved from his job.
As per the calls are concerned, he is the only one who can find out what is it all about. As Bhargavi said, there is no need to bother this much. So, if he wants to call back and find out then he can or else just let it go and enjoy the bright future.
Hope this helps

A relieving letter should be taken if your friend has left the organisation. Generally this is required by many organisation if he is going for a new job or change over.

Hello divyaramesh,
Like all the members pointed out, since the F&F has been done, there shouldn't be any cause for worry.
But what indicates some sort of 'worry/concern' on your friend's part is the hesitation to contact them to find out the reason(s) for the subsequent calls--what's wrong IF it is for completing the handing-over formalities? Why is he 'avoiding'--if I may use the word, to return the call?
Like some of the members suggested, it always pays to return calls & find out the reason(s). Like the saying goes: 'One needs to step into the pond if you want to know the depth'.

Full & final settlement of dues are made only after completion of contract.In this case ,it means they have accepted his resignation.So , he has nothing to worry about.However, exit formalities like handing over,no dues certificate etc. are in the employee's own interest also.Moreover , leaving a company as per its rules also help the employee to maintain cordial relation with the ex-employer.

Yeah TS, you hit it right.

He worked in a much superior position earlier but joined the company out of love for the field the company was in. Instead of giving him the position appropriate to his experience and studies, they gave him a very junior position. He still took it in the right stride and went to work. But his colleagues started acting bossy and bullied him all the time. They were there for a while and felt insecure with his capabilities. He cldn't complain to anybody as he had just joined. There was chaos about the reporting structure too. He didn't get to learn what he expected. Moreover, their levels were far too inferior. It is better to leave early than get stuck. So he just left. They were only too happy to see him leave. So, for his part, he doesnot want to go there and do the humiliating act of getting their signatures on no dues and handover. Moreover, it was only a month plus and there was really nothing to handover. Maybe a used pencil, that's it.

I am urging him to move on but he still feels bad about the whole thing.

Hello Divya,
I think you must be knowing about ISO audit, in there they demand the entire details of employees who joined and left with the entire documentation. A single lapse creates a situation, in the the time of review. Moreover let your friend talk to them, simply. In Human resource Management, a simple Full and Final statement is a basic requisite which the company needs to follow up. Also please let me know, was there any sort of contract, which was signed by your friend?
If yes then please do let us know the details, as a copy of any signed contract is given to the employee as well.
Hope we can find a simple solution to your friends Concern.

Hello divyaramesh,
Given what you mentioned, I still DON'T SEE WHY he should avoid calling back, if not meeting them.
Also, given his seniority, he ought to have learnt in life by now that he can always retain his stand/opinion/view-point & yet interact with others who gave him a raw deal.
For all you know, maybe this company has now realized that they lost a good employee & want to request him to rejoin? It could be a re-affirmation of his own set of skills/capabilities @ the emotional level for him--his response NEED NOT be dictated by their actions/words though. Hope you get the point.

Ms. Divya,
The management looks to be very positive, if they had opinion that he has to complete the exit formalities, they would have insisted for the same and after completion of the same only, they would have settled the full and final settlement. Since they have already done that, they may not be insisting for the same any more. As a good will gesture the onus is on your friend to personally meet the person who has completed the settlement, thank him personally and continue the good relations with the Management who have offered the employment and kind enough to send the amount payable to home address. There are managements who will create hassles without settling the account even after completion of exit formalities, your friend is luck in this regard, there should be a positive response from his/her side as well.
