One PSU had a civil contract workmen and they have been paid their bill regularly every month by the concerned PSU. Notice issued by PF authorities on PSU because of PSU is a principal employer, to pay PF contributions of the civil contract employees, to the government as the PF contribution were not paid by the contractor so far? PSU stand is that they have paid the contractor's bill regularly and there is nothing is pending at PSU end to settle the contractor further. In the mean time PSU accounts were audited for many years and nothing has been mentioned about the non-payment of PF contributions to Govt. Now PSU has no records (Salary and their attendance) of the employees who have been engaged by PSU.
High light of this case is there is no claim from any of the employees on PF dues so far.
What is the stand PSU should take now? Pl advise since it is very urgent.
