I am unable to think that it is the sole responsibility of a salesman to clear all the dues of credit sales effected by him on behalf of the establishment before approval of his resignation. He is not doing credit sales on his own; he would have certain norms to be strictly followed prescribed by the employer regarding credit facilities to the dealers. If any dealer defaults any payment, there are lawful ways and means to recover the dues from him. How can you shift the entire liability to the salesman who acted in good faith in the normal discharge of his duties?
Unless the credit sales itself is a bogus one or done by the salesman on his own in violation of the express instructions of the employer, where come the questions of criminal breach of trust and cheating? I think you are exaggerating the shortfall in the DCB of sales in the normal course of distribution of goods through dealers just to reject his resignation and to retain him at any cost.
Besides, a probationer remains a probationer till he is officially declared by his employer to have satisfactorily completed his period of probation. No deemed completion of probation nor any automatic confirmation unless there is such a specific deeming provision in the contract of employment.
My suggestion would be not to stretch things out of proportion when there is no such specific clause of clearing the collection of pending dues as a precondition for accepting the resignation of a salesman. The question of disciplinary action is out of context.
Did the purchasing company accept receiving the goods and your books of a/c etc show transaction and payment of GST etc?
What is the purpose of NOC from dealers?
Company needs to review its procedures?
If payments were overdue what actions were taken by the company?
Salesman cannot be made responsible to recover money.
At best he can liaise with his customers that is company customers.
Your procedures for confirmation etc need review.
Best would be to directly interact with customers and get money back.If this employee wants to leave let him go away.
Only do the checks necessary for dues,laptop .,mobile of company etc.
