Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. How long have you worked there?
Why do they say you have been overpaid, what did they overpay you on?
Over 5 years and overpaid on sick pay
do you agree you were overpaid?
Not sure as payslip is beyond me.
Gives basic pay then ssp paid -osp contra
so basic £1031 variable pay(ssp minus osp contra) minus £406 deductions minus £25.28 net pay £649.79 Dec 13 payslip
Just need to know; if overpaid can they take it all with no warning leaving me with nothing?
Feb payslip goes Basic pay£1268.29 Variable(ssp paid £780.30 minus osp contra £2217.35) =minus£1433.89 deductions (TR £165.60) so minus £165.60 = £0.00
The law does allow an employer to automatically deduct earlier overpayments from an employee’s wages, without any prior notice. However, at the same time employers must adhere to the implied contractual term of mutual trust and confidence. This term generally requires employers to act fairly and reasonably when dealing with their employees. If an employer does not act in an even handed manner, it could breach the implied trust and confidence and give the employee the opportunity to raise a grievance at first. If the matter remains unresolved, they could even consider resigning and claiming constructive dismissal, subject to having at least 2 years' continuous service with the company.
Thanks. Guess I will have to wait and see what Unison will do with it,
if you have union help then certainly use it as that is what it is there for
Have been as much use as a snow flake in hell so far. But will take it to the top.
you have the right to challenge it further - even though 'legally' they have the right to do this, they must also consider the effect it will have on its employees and leaving you with no pay when off sick is just not what a reasonable employer should be doing
