California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
Sorry I meant November. Not sure on why they would indicate I was still a active employee. I was acting manager at the facility, and we had a similar situation with a employee that we let go on his expense account. We let him go for fraud on his expense account, and denied payment at my facility for the fraud based expenses. But a couple of weeks went by and I noticed payments on the General Ledger for the same expenses, which were double paid to the former employee. The company indicated that they made a error, and most likely were unable to receive the funds back from the employee. I think the most likely did not handle my termination correctly, incorrectly filling out the paperwork. Not sure but its prevented me from collecting my benefits in the mean time, and we are trying to loan modify the house loan due to my unemployment. These payments are incorrect, and make seem that we are falsifying our statement to the bank for financial hardship. Can I keep the payments in lieu of my UI benefit denial ? Not that I want to, but not sure what to do... Thank You.
Thanks for your assistance, I will proceed with a verbal conversation and follow up email. As for the errant payments, I will leave them in the account in which they were deposited. Can the employer at any point in time retrieve amounts, 2-3 months down the road without notification to me or the bank. Thanks for all the help, its frustrating to deal with this situation. I just want to move forward...
Yes. Personal Bank Account-Direct Deposit. I called HR again, and they indicated that I was still a active employee and they will resolve the situation ASAP. They indicated that they were unaware that I was terminated. I indicated that if I will follow up with a email, and if they do not comply with correcting the situation I will assume that all payments to my account will be counted as severance pay. Thanks again for the help. Mark
