I should have started SMP last month, one week from sept pay and then the other 5 weeks at 90% in Octobers pay, so my pay should have reduced slightly. But its gone up!!!!! Not by much, about £30pm but I think thats due to my sept pay rise. I have had my payslip today which reads OMP ...then Basic Pay Arrears
Surely it should read SMP? I was mightily pissed off that I missed the OMP by 11 days but they wouldnt give me any so I should be on SMP.
Yes, yes I know I should ring them, and I know that it would be better to have to pay them back now whilst I actually have money before they start proper SMP next month at £123pw. But the devil on my shoulder says 'youve worked your ass off for this place for 4 years, lets just see if they notice' I know that payroll have been notified as I was sent a copy of the letter.
WWYD??? <mosschops dons hard hat ready for onslaught>
You could put the money to one side and see if they notice. Then you have still got it to pay it back.
Be warned though, I came back from ML in Jan to an email from Personnel saying due to a mistake on their part, there was £300 outstanding on a season ticket loan from 200andfecking5! It was taken out of my salary so I never kept track at the time but now I've been £50 a month down on my part time pittance for the last six months. I was chuffed to little mint balls about that one . The moral of the story is, the buggers will get you in the end!
Oh bugger, have phoned payroll. They were paying me OMP, which means I would have had full pay for 6 months during my mat leave. She was suprised that the system paid it if I wasnt entitled to it, but its because I worked for them casually for 3 years, so Im thinking now, no-one would have ever noticed
I know, should I have kept schtum? Thing is I would have spent the whole of my mat leave worrying about the fact that they were paying me 1k more a month than they should, not exactly a few quid is it?
