Hi RiotACT Community,
I have found myself in a situation where my HR department has overpaid me for a period of 12 months – leaving me with a liability in excess of a complete fortnight pay. This is an error caused by the HR department not by myself. I was wondering what your experience has been and what are my rights in terms of negotiating a re-payment plan.
I have been told that the delegate has to approve a payment schedule plan (otherwise payment is due immediately). HR have given me a stat dec template which requires me to complete total assets, liability, income and expenditure details not only for myself but my total annual household. I am completely against giving HR this level of detail (it is more than what my bank requires for a credit card application) and loathed to supply this information to them (as it is none of their business).
Has anyone had a similar experience or knows what my rights are in relation to negotiating a plan without having to provide intimate details of my financial situation to my employer?
Thanks in advance.
