I have 8 years of total IT experience. I recently (june 2017) switched my job and as the days passed i was feeling frustrated because of no work as i was on bench. I decided enough was enough and started giving job interviews and got selected in one of the reputed company. During interview i did not mention anything about my current employer, I told them about my previous employment (5 to be precise) I told my last employment was with the company number 5 and did not inform them about my current employer and I told them that I got laid off and was searching for job and was learning new technologies. the company agreed for the gap and scheduled all the interviews which i cleared and released the offer.
my current employment stands only for 7 months and I have absconded. actually I have not absconded, I sent email for immediate resignation and submitted my ID card to admin and came out of office.
Question 1: since i have not mentioned about my current employment anywhere in my resume or anywhere, can my future company find out about this job which I have absconded?
Question 2: IF background check happens, they are going to check the data and references which i have provided and nothing else?
Question 3: I have absconded last week, can i join my new employer next week?
This is my first absconding so a bit nervous.
My request is please do not answer taking moral things into consideration. I do understand that i have not left ethically. Please let me know if any input is required.

If the company does a thorough back ground check and visits your previous company (No4)prior to absconding, they will understand why you left that company, whether you were laid off.
Were you really laid off or you left for job change?
gap of 7 months would be also checked up.
Scope of verification check can vary from company to company.
Company 5 could have given negative feed back on NASSCOM.
Were you registered on NASSCOM?
My point of asking so many questions is that one has to think of consequences while/before doing anything.
Joining a new job can be done anytime now that you have abandoned previous company and not informed new employer about it.

Below are the answers to the questions:
1. I left the job for a change
2. for 7 months gap, during interviews with the company, I told them that i was on bench and was laid off due to no projects.
3. i did not register in NASSCOM, I did register in NSR. but I think the company from which i have absconded is not associated with NASSCOM or NSR. because during joining thy did not ask me anything related to NASSCOM or NSR. if they were registered, they would have definitely asked me my NASSCOM or NSR number.
I have not faked anything, I have just taken this current employment from my resume.
they check the details which are provided by me right ?

Though you have not included your employment in the new organization, your PF would show your employment of 7 months if your Aadhar linked to your UAN. Moment they enter your UAN/Aadhar in PF employer portal they can find your last employment.

Thanks keshav for the reply.
If i do not show any PF or UAN from the absconded employment, then?
I have not activated the UAN and pf provided by the current employer on the epfo portal yet.
I guess, once i activate the UAN and only then aadhar is seeded and then aadhar is linked. Which is to be done from my end.
I won't mention anything about my previous UAN or PF. I will ask my new employer to create a fresh one.
I will let go of the pf and uan of current employment and since it is only 7 months. I am not loosing much.

You will be leaving too much of electronic trail in a wired world of PAN numbers and Aadhar. Will you be able to create another UAN Take care and avoid any hasty moves.

Dear friend,
Things may or may not happen but if happens you will be in false position as you did not disclose the material facts related to previous employment to your employer. Always follow a fair path to avert future complication while deal with your self future. Pl do not discuss this type of things in general, who knows that your employer HR is not following the forum.

Dear Friend
Since you have an IT background, I dont need to tell you that now things are backward integrated. Now tell me how much and how many times you will hide.
Have you done anything which is not mention able and hence you are under psychological pressure to hide.
People are not fools, you are jeopardizing your carrier, so, come clean because people will come to know sooner or later. As you mentioned above that you have resigned then why hide the facts?
You know better.
