Now they are saying that they over paid him didn't tell us how much buy and this wage they've took all the overtime back and additionall hours he's done and left us with not even his basic salary. Can they do that?? Cause the don't seem to know what they are doing> i am so cross.
They are not allowed to deduct it without your dh signing to say that he agrees with the deduction. If he hasn't signed anything it is classed as an unlawful deduction and they need to pay it back to him, if he hasn't signed they also lose the right to deduct it at a later date.
Thanks alot for that. All he was told was that they 'might' have overpaid him, wanted his payslip which we didn't give them they should have there own copies. They haven't made him sign anything, he hasn't signed anything they just did it.
Basically we over paid you... nothing else and then wham off his wages this month.
That's very unfair, if they've overpaid that much they should allow you to pay it off over a few months especially if it was their fault.
Make them tell you how the error ocurred and explain the figures etc and tell them they cannot just take it all back this month as they have left you in a financial nightmare, which I assume it would have.
Do you know if he should have had all the pay in the first place?
Well dp did do alot of overtime, so didnt think twice when we got payslip just thought that was what was due him. Yes it has made things tight, and dp is trying to sort it out as we speak but i just wanted something to throw at them, yes would be bettter for them to take it back little by little. They seemed to have really mucked it up. I thought they had to tell him they were taking it not just do it. We do have kids to consider.
They would definately have to let you know before doing it especially as it's left you without his basic wage.
Do you keep a record of the overtime he does, or rather does he. You cannot rely on employers to get everything right and I would check every payslip to make sure he gets the hours he's done. My work added our xmas vouchers to our pay in January(should've taken them off aswell!!!) so i'm down this month too. When they told me I just laughed and said well i could've told you that but you haven't given me my payslip yet!! And i work for a frim of accountants, they should know better!
Fingers crossed for you. Surely they should have paid Jans o/time in feb too so i'd be asking where that is
Make sure you do, but still keep on at his employer re taking it all back at once. and get an explanation as if he did do some overtime then you want to know how much they've clawed back and therefore how much he still got paid for IYSWIM. Also try to get them to realise that taking it back all at once has left you in trouble. I'd overexagerate if you need to. 'i can't pay the rent/mortgage now' etc as they have been very unfair.
