Respected All,
Our organisation is covered under EPF Act. Some of our employees are getting retired from service after attaining 58 yrs age and they have taken their full & final dues & pf withdrawal form duly attested by us on the same day. Some of them are interest to work with us after retirement.
My Query is :- Can we rejoin them after retirement as their salary above 6500/- pm and their pf dues still not cleared by pf department. Need your kind advice.

Since they have already withdrawn the PF (or applied for withdrawal benefits) you can exclude them from EPF even if their PF qualifying salary is less than Rs 6500.
Please note that this applies only to those who have been under the EPF Schemes and not for any person joining your company after retiring from Government department. In such cases, they may be getting pensions from the government but not from EPF and therefore, they should be covered under the EPF if their salary are less than 6500. In respect of them the employer's contribution of 12% should not be divided into 8.33% and 3.67% but the entire 12% should be paid to the employee's provident fund account only.
