Overpayment following redundancy
in Redundancy & redundancy planning
10 replies 6.3K views
I was recently made redundant and when I received my final payslip I noticed I had been overpaid by £6000. I contacted my employer immediately and made them aware of the error. They also replied straight away, thanked me for advising them and said they would look into it. Since then I have heard nothing. I know I am not entitled to this money and repaying it is not an issue but do I have a legal responsibility to keep chasing them or is the onus on them now as I have informed them? If I just send them a cheque for the overpayment then I am going to be out of pocket as I have been taxed on part of the funds. Any advice would be appreciated.
