Hi Everyone,


apologies if this is not the right part of the forum, but I have a question regarding an overpayment claim from my last employer.


Thy wrote to me about a month ago, stating they had over paid me on my final pay dated 25/06/2015 to the amount of £633.98, and wanted payment within 7 days. They attached a breakdown which was massively incorrect, and made no sense, a complete mess of company sick pay, statutory sick pay, basic pay and holiday, and several incorrect sums. I am still contacting them to try and get an explanation of how I can have been overpaid, but wanted to check my rights also, as this is causing me anxiety attacks and sleepless nights worrying about it.


I had been off sick with anxiety and depression (partially due to work related stress) for two months at my last employer, when I decided to hand in my notice,as I was not going to be well enough to return for the foreseeable future, and felt like a burden, as I knew there was no budget for cover, people were already over worked, and I was a fairly senior member of staff, in terms of tasks I was performing. They accepted eventually,and my final date of employment, and date of final pay was 26/06/2015.


I hadn't received my payslips whilst off sick, and didn't receive my final pay slip either, so chased the H.R department several times by email back in july, but this was eventually forgotten about, as none of my pay amounts seemed incorrect, my ongoing ill health and the fact that no-one from the company got back to me after promising to contact me when they would be sent out.


My question is, if it does turn out that an overpayment was made , can I fight this?. I am on ESA benefits as I cannot leave the house most days,let alone work, and I have absolutely no money to repay this whatsoever, I don't think I could bare this going to court, but I simply can't pay, and it all seems very unfair


Any help gratefully appreciated, apologies for the long rant!
