One of our employees joined our organization last year December, after working for 8 days he left the organization after submitting resignation even before we issue him an appointment letter.
We requested him several times since then to send us some documents in order to complete the full and final settlement, but he didn't submit anything. We didn't pay him any salary for those 8 days since he had not submitted those prescribed documents.
Now the problem is during joining he signed form 11 along with the other joining documents, so we were supposed to give him the epf amount. But since we didn't pay him the salary due to the non cooperation from that person we didn't pay the epf either, his full and final settlement is still on hold.
We are going to conduct our statutory audit in a few days time, before that during our internal audit this issue was come up once again, and we were told to pay his epf amount immediately.
We have called him up and he said he had joined another organization. We are a BSE/NSE enlisted company.
Please guide us what are our options now? Can we give him the pf dues now? We haven't added his UAN back then since he left even before we could have done that. Can we add his UAN now after 6 months? And if we add can he take any step against us since adding our establishment with his UAN means delisting his present establishment. If yes, should we show it as arrears or wages?
Please guide, it's urgent.
