I got forwarded this email to my former manager and myself today. I had 4 days of annual leave balance when I left, I did not consider chasing them up for it till now but now my old company is chasing me up for 'overpayment'. I thought it was up to the responsibility of the company to make sure I am being paid correctly. What responsibility if any do I have to pay this back and can they send debt collectors after me? Should I bring up my 4 days of Annual leave balance which equates to equates to a bit over $1000.
This is to keep you inform that your direct team member Levity was being overpaid in October 2021 salary payment.
There was being overpayment to Levity due to “Delay in termination update in workday after main cycle payroll cut-off”.
The net overpayment amount was a bit over $1,000.
