Apologies for not getting back to you sooner, I experienced some temporary connection issues and could not get back on the site until now. All appears to be resolved now so I can continue dealing with your query. Can you please clarify a few things for me: Are you in the UK or US? When did you leave your employment? Does the contract say anything about the employer being able to retain such payments?
