I am happy to answer but I just answered similar question on another post.
If you posted twice on two separate accounts please let me know.
OKThe court would require you to pay this money back.
The court would not require you to pay interest as this was not your mistake and you didn't know you were being overpaid.
If they sue you then a court would give you a reasonable amount of time to pay and in my view you would be given 6 months as that is how long it took them to pay you the higher amount in error.
Do you see what I mean?
They cannot withhold your paycheques.
If they do then contact the Employment Standards Branch.
This has nothing to do with your collective agreement.
They overpaid you in error and they are entitled to the money back.
You should have something in writing but there is no requirement about that.
You are very welcome.
If we are done please rate me before you leave the site so that I can receive credit for my work.
Thanks and take good care.
