Would an out of court settlement be a possibility based on the fact that if I am prosecuted and lose my job I will find it difficult to pay the money back to them? E.g if agreed to pay the balance and the court costs within 7 days
I don't understand what they are gaining from this as I have agreed to pay it all back, all it will do for them is result in the money not being paid back if I lose my job.
I had the interview under caution in December and only received a letter with the summons on Yesterday, is this the normal timeframe? I thought she suggested that it was within a month when I was interviewed. The reason I ask is that I have had an issue with the repayments (their fault not mine) and was sent another reminder notice to pay even though I was doing. It seems to have happened coincidently, I wondered whether this had come about due to their system showing I had missed a payment when in actual fact I hadn't. Would 4 months after the interview be an expected timeframe to receive this?
Thanks, ***** ***** of fine am I looking at here based on the fact that I already have a payment plan in place and have paid a third back already?
On the birth of my daughter I dropped to 30 hours per week, 1 year later I returned to 37 and failed to inform them. There are a few other instances they are claiming I should have informed them of overtime but I didn't. Over a period of 3 years overpayment obviously built up. It was for a combination of housing benefit and council tax. As stated I immediately set a payment plan up for £500 per month and have already paid £2000 back. There is evidence of me informing both HMRC and the council about changes that would lower what they pay so I am unsure as to why I didn't inform them of this. There is 5 summons but they all equate to the same reason but with different dates on over the last 4 years, I presume these are the dates award notices were sent out that I failed to check correctly. The irony is when I moved into my purchased property I ended the claims but was informed I could still claim council tax benefit although it would be very little due to me owning a property. I did apply and send all my updated payslips and bank statements in which turned out not to match what they ad on file, Is this really the act of someone who has genuinely tried to claim £6000 that I wasn't entitled to.
Sorry, I have left feedback. Just over 6K in total. I have decided to pay all the balance back in full prior to the hearing too.
That is correct yes.
Thank You, ***** ***** potential unpaid work be worked around my full time job?
One final question I have, would the press be allowed to name my employer in any article written about this? The situation I am in is if they do I could be dismissed, if they don't I would be ok.
Can I ask why you think the press would be unlikely to name my employer in any article?
