I was working in a company for 5 months after graduating from college. The environment wasn't good and stressful and lot of pressure was put even though was I a fresher. After baring for 5 months, I quit the company in Dec'21 and told HR and she accepted it later on telling me I have to pay the bond amount. I was told that I won't be able to pay the amount as it wasn't affordable for me and what I had earned, had to support my family with it.

Told her my condition but she still wouldn't accept and blocked me from all forms of communication. Jan'22 I got an offer from another company(mass recruiting ones) and I have given all my details to them. My question was, will my joining be blocked as my previous company has not updated my date of exit in pf and even though I requested to update it, they wouldn't respond. I have disclosed my work history to my current company but they haven't responded. So can anyone please advise me about this situation?

Dear Member,

There are so many discussions on the same topic in this forum,

To clarify your questions:

1. Whatever may be the reason, you have left the organisation without proper exit process. You have breached the contract with your employer, obviously they will ask for the bond amount, its better not to enter into such employment, since you have already entered, you have to request HR to support. You have told that HR is not responding. Try to visit them in person to office and seek their support. If you have good rapport with your reporting manager seek their intervention.

2. If you have got the job in MNC, they will definitely go for BGV. Since you have already disclosed about your previous employment with your new employer, be ready with the answers for leaving your previous employment abruptly.

3. There are chances for your previous employer to share negative remarks about your employment with them if offered for BGV.

4.Regarding Exit date in PF, you have take the support of HR. Your may also update the exit date, but there are definite chances of wrong entry which may further complicate PF transfer and withdrawal. So better get in touch with your ex-employer and resolve it smoothly.

Hi Sudha, my main concern was if the date of exit isnt marked in pf, then will my joining be blocked by my current employer. I am joining this company as a fresher so no previous experience is required, so it doesnt matter to them where I have worked unless I am still an employee of that company. The only worry I have was the marking of the date of exit in pf, so can you tell me what can happen if it isnt marked

You have violated a bond and then left without notice (I assume)
And you are hoping the HR of the previous company will help, assist or in anyway be included to do something for your benefit?

Anyway, you can log into your PF account and file your exit information on your own. You no longer need to depend on your previous company to do it.

However, be aware that as soon as your new company learns you have already have an existing PF account, they will want to know the details of your employment and will not consider you a fresher as such. They may conduct BGV and call the previous company to know about your employment status or may ask you for your relieving letter.

There is a strong possibility of getting caught, as you are already a member of PF, and in the new organisation if they make you a member there will be clash as your exit date is not recorded by the previous employer. Even if they treat you as an exempted employee (i.e., drawing salary more than Rs. 15,000/- pm), PF Inspector can verify your account details with the Aadhar Card of yours.
