Respected sir, I won't ask that may I face difficulties to get a new job if I sued my last employer for nonpayment of my salaries and EPF amount. How I can convince the new employer or HR? If a new employer does background verification then the old employer can tell bad words to the new HR about me.
How i can escape from this situation please guide us.

As you correctly stated, background verification is a critical and crucial action that any firm would undertake, which is a fantastic thing to perform.
It is not your fault that your prior company did not pay your wage on time, and you have the right to sue them if you were not listened to.
I also believe that the former employer would never admit to not paying staff salaries. However, the cause for your salary not being paid is due to certain missing information in your query. Was it because of a disciplinary issue? If your old employer shares the facts to your new employer, this could be a red flag.

Ideally, we should do thorough follow-ups and send a sufficient number of reminders to companies who do not respect the law. I'm not sure if you tried to bargain with your employer about this before you sued them.

For blocked EPF amounts,complain to EPF authorities and matter will get resolved.If EPF amount is deducted and not remitted to PF,it is a serious issue for the Company.
Get your papers in order and collate EPF deducted as per Salary slips etc and amount as per PF statements from EPFO.
Once you collect documents,filing complaint with EPFO is not an issue.
As far as pay is concerned,filing to get your legitimate dues will not affect your Verification.Off course previous employer will try to be negative about you at any rate.New employer will uderstand that negativity is due to unpaid dues issue.
