It appears he is taking the organisation for granted, and that is not acceptable. The notice period is not an empty formality and cannot be wished away. It is the obligation of the employee to complete the assignments in hand and hand over the charge smoothly. If there is a failure on the part of the employee in this, he is to be clearly told that his relieving depends on the completion of the formalities satisfactorily and because of his acts and omissions he needs to work for additional days before he can be relieved and issued relieving certificate and paid full & final dues. You need not pay him for the period he is said to have worked at home. You may post draft letter/e-mail to this effect which could be considered by the seniors.
