Ben - This from question I asked the other

This answer was rated:

Hi Ben - This is follow up from question I asked the other day about my ex employer saying I have to repay expenses, which is after I left. I took your advice and told them I disagree with the outcome, and I no longer need to comply with internal company processes. They have now sent me a email stating the matter is now will be heard by another manager via appeal process. I don't see why I need to even entertain this. Should I reply and state that I no longer need to adhere to internal company processes or just ignore.
Hi, you do not have to reply to them so it is up to you as to whether you wish to do so. You are correct that you are no longer bound by their internal processes so if for example you are asked to attend an appeal hearing you do not have to do so. You could ignore the correspondence if you wanted to and see where they take this - they may not bother taking further action but even if they do, your refusal to comply with the appeals process or reply to their correspondence will not affect the final outcome. I hope this has answered your query. I would be grateful if you could please take a second to leave a positive rating (3, 4 or 5 stars) as that is an important part of our process and recognises the time I have spent assisting you. If you need me to clarify anything before you go - please get back to me on here and I will assist further as best as I can. Thank you
