    Default Legal Employment Advice... Anyone?

    I have been paid a monthly expenses allowance within my wages for the last year for being a first aider at work. Within my payslip this month they have deducted the entire years allowance. I have not been notified of this. My contract terms however state that reserve the right to deduct any over payment from my wages or allowances. The only reason they could claim it is an overpayment is that it also states that each first aider must be appointed. I do not think I was formally appointed on this project; I have however been an acting first aider. I obviously therefore do not agree that it is an overpayment

    My question is can they legally just take the money back? Do I have a leg to stand on?

    Thanks!

    I don't think they can do that, they obviously think they can though. I don't understand why they would do such a devious thing.

    Your best bet is to ask the CAB.

    before you go too far best thing to do would be to ask the question WHY you have been deducted and explain why you feel you SHOULD have been paid - and WHO APPROVED the payment in the first place

    if you cannot get as satisfactory response then you have the oppertunity to escalate at that stage - rather than going in guns blazing and then having to back down becuase of a genuine mistake or omission on someones part

    Agreed, better to start with HR and simply ask why the sum (that you feel you're entitled to as you've been acting as first aid cover) has been deducted. It is much better to start low key than to jump in and start throwing accusations around.

    If they say that you were never formally appointed, then why have they been paying the money for so long? Were your services required during this period of time? Were you named as first aider on any material, paperwork, proposals etc?

    If you haven't been the appointed cover, then who was and is it necessary for the work your company does to have an appointed first aider on a particular project?

    Yep. Someone else in the HR department, might not realise you are entitled to the "extra amount" for being a first aider and thought there was an error. Rather than ask one of their work mates, they have took it upon them selves and reclaimed what they wrongfully thought you should not have. Probably an error on their part. So as said above I would ask them why it has been deducted.
