This is very common mistake by lot of contractors for lack of knowledge. Ask the contractor to meet the respective PF office with all facts - Casual leave application for 05.05.2017 ( In absence of any application may be the attendance register showing against the date as CL). There must be one forwarding letter stating the fact with documentation. Contractor has to proof that the concerned employee was on the roll of the Company on 05.05.2017 , the day of the expire of the employee otherwise PF authority will not settle the EDLI Claim.
