With all due respect I wish to convey that I was employed at Company A for a brief period of 2 months (June-July, 2017). Afterwards I left the organization as I had some health issues and I wasn't bound to any contract with them too. For the fact that they hadn't provided any kind of Offer/Joining/Appointment letter at the time of commencement of job, I didn't ask for a relieving/experience letter too.

Since 'Mark Exit' option wasn't available that time I couldn't mark exit on my own and later Company A deliberately marked incorrect DOE in my EPF account.

When I raised this issue on EPF grievance portal I was asked to get a joint declaration along with form 10 for the same.

Initially the employer was not responding to my emails but after raising another grievance they replied (on the instructions of EPF office) and asked for a proof of date of exit despite knowing the fact that they never provided one.

Sir ! My EPF passbook clearly states that there was no contribution made from either side after July, 2017. And this is evident enough to say that I didn't enjoy employment there after July, 2017. Also, I could produce my bank statements proving that no salary was received after the one for July.

When I tried contacting the employer over a phone call they simply told that they can't help me on this as absconding employees are not eligible for EPF (as per them).

In this regard I request your guidance on further possible steps.

If you had left the organisation due to health issues, you should not have joined another company post 31-7-2017. If you had not joined anywhere, the DOE does not make any difference. In a way it is good for you because the company is certifying your service till the date of exit as per PF portal! On the other hand, if you have joined somewhere and the date of joining in that company is earlier to the DOE of the previous company, you should change it. For that you can use the same grievance cell saying that the employer is not signing the joint declaration.
