I left my last employer on 8th August as my manager said
I left my last employer on 8th August as my manager said they thought I was struggling and so I asked what the solution was, thinking he would say training and he said he thought it best I leave. I was shocked but agreed and left that day. I was only there for 7 months and had asked for training several times as the role was very technical but I never had any.I asked if I would be paid and they said they would sort it all out and I would hear from them soon. I was then paid on the15th August, full pay, but didn't receive any letter from them. I emailed them at the end August to ask for my P45 and they said I would get it after Septembers pay. I never did. I have now received a letter, dated 24th October, which states - 'Futher to your resignation...it has come to light that an overpayment of salary has been made.' They are saying I owe £358.93 and I have to pay it back by 16th November. They also say I won't receive my P45 until I pay. Can they do this? Also the letter is wrong as I never resigned. Do I need to get further legal help. I have spent the wages as I believed they paid me what I was owed. … read more
