saswatabanerjeeThe payment of bonus act provides that you can adjust bonus paid during the year in any form from the final bonus payable, whether it is advance of bonus or customary bonus. So yes, you can pay part bonus now and the balance in November as customary bonus.
Those who left the job, you have to pay them for the time they worked for you, either by transferring to their account or by sending them an account payee cheque to their residence by registered post. If they do not cash the check, you need to keep the money aside and after 3 years, pay it to the labour welfare fund.
As for those who were transferred to other jobs, I do not see the problem of giving them bonus now for part of the year.
