Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I did the monthly payroll which was a rush every month as I didn't get the time sheets from the engineers until the last minute
so I had to rush to do the payroll and I let a back pay on my payslip and didn't remove it so over 3 yrs it added up to 6k
I was not paid my last pay of approx 493.00 and did not receive my P45 or P60 I was given a task of getting the debtors down from 57k to 40k and my boss said anything below that he would pay me I got it down to 7k but he than said he did not say this I have a paper with the time and date he discussed this and he shook my hand

Please let me know what is happening otherwise I will take this further
Expert:  Michael Holly replied 3 months ago.

£6000 is quite a lot and it went on for a long period so it was not impulsive.

Also where a position of trust is involved it is regarded seriously

You need to offer to pay it back but provided you do not have any previous convictions for a similar style offence you could avoid prison.

Clearly you were under pressure and this is a mitigating factor

Best regards

Michael
