My employer never showed me proof of the increase in premiums and they did not tell me until about 2 weeks ago. I was sent an email saying I didn't reimburse them for his insurance premiums per our agreement. Nothing was said about them neglecting to inform me of the increase. Today he came to me asking how I wanted to pay them back. My response was "I'm not". I don't think I should have to pay for a bookkeeping error on their part two years after the fact. I knew the labor code indicating that they could not withhold monies without written consent. I just wanted to make sure legally I don't have to reimburse them after they paid the bill every month and never mentioned to me that there was an increase. I explained that if they had done so at the time I would have been more than happy to pay the increase in premiums (even though nothing was ever in writing). This is a CPA firm and we are supposed to be the experts.
I was not given a reason as to why they failed to inform me about the increase.
