I am working in the HR Department of one of South India based pvt company. We have various branches in 4 different states in south india. Now we want to open in Northern INdia. So we are planning to open a zonal office in northern India, from where we control the branches of northern India.
We have already started recruting staff for Northern India branches. Now my questions is that Can we give from starting the employee code to our northern India employee, instead of giving continuous employee code which we issue from our head office in south India.
Is it legally correct?
I am asking the question because in this case the company is one but the employee code to south branch staff will be issued from the head office in south India and in case north India staff the employee code will be issued from our north India zonal office.
Please suggest me Will it be legally right or wrong?
