It was supposed to be in place when I started (Oct 2014) but they dragged their heels and it only got put in place in August this year, so only one payment was made under this scheme and now they want it back
Thanks Ben, one quick follow up, this paragraph is in my contract, does it mean I don't have a claim?
Deductions from Pay The Company reserves the right to require you to repay monies owed by deductions from salary or other method acceptable to the company: For reasons of overpayment (statutory or discretionary) whether made by mistake or through misrepresentation; upon termination of employment for holiday paid to you in excess of accrued entitlement; any other sums owed to the Company including but not limited to advances, loans or relocation expenses. **Any losses sustained in relation to property, or monies of the Company, client or other employee during the course of employment caused by negligence, recklessness or breach of the Company rules or any dishonesty on your part.
The commission wasn't wrongfully paid, it was properly calculated on the work I had brought in. The problem is that the company has since decided not to deliver all of the work and are claiming that I must repay the commission. As this is my final salary and I will then be unemployed I'm trying to stop them doing this but I'm not sure from your answer that I have a legal claim to do so.
