Dear All, I had joined a big NBFC and within first 3 day I realized that the work culture is not meant for me and I won't be able to survive long,
Thus took the decision immediately to leave before its too late, sent the intimation mail of not continuing the job offered to HR as well as Function head and joined the new organization next week.. Had few phone calls explained my problem and apologized for the inconvenience
I assumed things were over and was happy in the new organization but unfortunately it wasn't
As at the month end that previous company credited my full salary and opened a PF account with my UAN, It is a problem for me because now my current HR will have documented evidence from EPFO about this prior thing which is an unnecessary bad record (It may also look like dual appointment which is not at all permitted in current company)
Things against me - I had signed an appointment letter with 3 month notice period clause which I didn't serve
Things in my favor
I had served only 3 days (assuming they cant force a notice period for such a small duration employee)
I do not have any asset of that company laptop was BYOD
My current boss is aware of my previous goof-up and he was okay with that while onboarding
I have given mail intimation, verbally told HR in discussions and when got salary credited again mailed back for reversal
In the whole scenario salary credit and PF opening doesn't seem to be erroneous in such a big company where i by my self offering a reversal but still HR is ignoring my mails and calls
1. Why they would be crediting salary intentionally?
2. Can that previous company force me to serve notice or ask for compensation?
2. Can my current employer cancel my appointment because of this (I am on probation)?
Note: I do not intend to keep the amount credited and am willing to return it as per their direction but they did not reply

Your queries are answered below
1. It is not likely that the salary was credited by mistake, probably intentionally. What is their motive could be guessed, as it appears to be interested in getting you back.
2. That can be expected as the next step.
3. Not likely, particularly since you have kept your current boss posted.
