  • Ex-Employer trying to recoup overpayments

    I have just received a letter from my ex-employer informing me they have overpaid me and that I owe them money. They have not given any information as to what exactly I have been overpaid (no calculations as to how they have worked this out) and I am pretty sure this isnít the case. I have done a course which was about the amount they are trying to recoup, however they havenít specified that it is for this. Additionally, I left due to being no longer able to do my changed shifts because of restructuring and had it in writing both from my line manager and HR that I wouldnít be charged for the course if I had to leave because I couldnít do my shift changes .
    I did lose faith in my company towards the end of my employment hence why I think they may be trying to recoup course charges under the guise of overpaid salary, however I could be wrong.
    in the letter it stated they would be taking £200 out of my salary per month until my debt was paid off (unsure how they can do this since I no longer work there). Where do I stand with this? Iím inclined to ignore but unsure whether I should get union help or request their reasonings for how they have come to this realisation that I suddenly owe them money.

    I suggest you go back and ask them to give you a breakdown of how they have calculated the overpayment and see what they provide you.

    How long ago did you leave them?
