As an employer, it is not uncommon for wages to be overpaid – particularly at the end of an employment contract or where the employment was for a fixed period. Similarly, it is more regular than you might imagine for zero-hour or hourly paid staff to submit inaccurate working hours, leading to an overpayment.
Where an employee refuses to repay wages, it can in certain circumstances amount to a criminal offence. Whilst pursuing an employee through the criminal process might not be an avenue you want to take, the civil process for overpaid wages is straightforward and with Debt-Claims, we can take your claim all the way from pre-action letters up to court proceedings and enforcement.
