Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. Was a specific rate for this work agreed with you?
Thank you Ben but nothing was discussed with me.
Hello, sorry I was offline by the time you had replied last night. You mention that the arrangement of you working during the day only lasted for one month, yet you then also say you were overpaid for that work for the last 3-4 months? Can you please clarify – does the employer mean that you carried on being paid for the day work after you stopped doing it, or did you actually work in that position for longer? Thanks
There is no answer here. Please reply again
Hi Ben, I did not have a contract, nothing re my day hours, pay, holiday pay was in writing.
I was paid for the day work after I left the post as a day administrator for 3-4 months, but I still worked as an evening receptionist.
As I did not even know what my hourly rate was, it is hard for me to reconcile. I have asked the company for a breakdown. Will I have to pay it back?
Hi Ben, I have replied. Can you please send your answer to my hotmail account as for some reason i cannot reply to my gmail account. Its [email protected]. To answer again, I do not have a contract for the day work I did, no rate of pay, hours or holiday pay was ever documented/discussed. I was paid for the day work I did about 3-4 months after the role finished, as they said they had to let me go but I could still continue my work in the evening. The day role and evening role were very different. If you need any more info, please email me on hotmail. My question really is do I have to pay this money back? Jane
Thank you very much Ben. A great answer! I guess I have to go to a solicitor for an 'estoppel'? If you could please confirm. The points you mention do refer to me, ie no contract, had no idea I as being overpaid, it was the employers fault, I did make a purchase, ie use the funds towards a house move, I would not normally receive that amount, ie over £1000.
Ok, If i get the breakdown from the company and am still not happy should I say that I am taking legal advice and then take the estoppel route? not sure how it works. This is the last question. thanks for all your help!
