Hello, I recently shared my salary slip with an HR in an HR round of the interview process. After pondering over it for a few seconds, the HR told me that it was an illegal salary slip and hence it won't stand ground in the company as salary proof. He said, there is no DA, no medical allowance or group insurance, no PF, no mention of variable/fix income...and asked what is 'Other allowance' as mentioned in my salary slip.

I had no idea as i never bothered myself with those details...so he said, this does not qualify as a 'standard' and unless i can produce a qualified salary slip, they cant move further with such high salary offer....I believe that it was a flimflam to have the offer negotiated....but i want to know how much truth he was saying... Could anyone please analyze the particulars and tell me whats wrong with it ?

PS- i don't have PF...despite many requests, management hasn't open any PF acc for me yet....but this is not the point i am bothered or interested about....mainly the standardness ?

Here are the particulars of the salary slip:

Basic: 33500
HRA: 13400
Conveyance: 800
Other Allowance: 19300
Special Allowance: 0
Festival Bonus: 0
Leave Encashment: 0
Performance Bonus: 0

Medical Premium: 0
Other deductions: 0

Dear friend,

You could have told the HR Manager that the configuration of the salary structure is beyond the jurisdiction of the employees. They have no say on how the the salary components are designed. Either they accept the way it is or quit the employment. Of course needy employees have to accept it as they do not have any option.

You could have told to the HR of interviewing company that his counterparts in your present company have designed the present salary structure. Therefore, disbelief on the salary slip is disbelief on his fraternity as well.

You may provide the photocopy of the transactions of your savings bank account to your future HR. Get it authenticated by the bank authorities. Transaction details in your account will show that you have been drawing 'x' amount per month consistently. Therefore, this should act as sufficient proof of employment.

If the HR of your future company remains impervious to pleas then you may tell him to refer the reply of this post. As such you have raised the post anonymously. He also could be member of this forum. If he is not, then he may become and raise his concerns in this thread itself that too anonymously.

Above all, most of the companies conduct background verification. They can very well confirm authenticity of your candidature.

If your candidature satisfies other requirements of the post for which you have applied then for the sake of salary slip, your candidature cannot be turned down.

Thanks,

so...the bank statement alone is sufficient!...that was good to know :) ...i can do that, no problems...thanks friend...it was immensely helpful ...
Looks like it was indeed an effort to seed surprises/shocks just before salary negotiations...good thing i chose to call it a roadblock and left for the day...
Thanks again :) It was really helpful

Dear friend,

You are thanking me for my reply nevertheless, I would like to give supplementary comments or rather cautionary comments.

It is strange that HR shows outright suspicion right at the interview stage on the salary slip that you had provided. Therefore, the incident raises two questions. The first one is about professionalism of HR. Second one is about professional culture in the company itself. Does HR symbolise the overall unprofessional culture of the company or his unprofessional approach was in isolation? It merits investigation.

Therefore, my humble recommendation is to investigate properly about the future company and then join. Do proper market research, find out the ex-employees of the company and talk to them. Tell them the incident so that they open up.

Once joined, you cannot undo your decision hence this caution.

All the best!
