OH checked his bank this morning & was shocked to see he was minus about £400 from his wages. Called work (as he's away on training today) who opened his wage slip for him & told him that nearly £500 had been taken out by OSP.
Looked at his last 2 wage slips & have seen he'd been paid over 2 months OSP totalling nearly £500.
Googled OSP, Occupation Sick Pay. He hasn't been off sick. So clearly the previous 2 months were paid in error. However this was not noticed by either of us as his wages weren't abnormally high as he'd been doing overtime.
He hasn't received any sort of letter or been spoken to by anybody regarding the error or that it'd be taken in full out of this month's wage.
Anyway what i wanted to know was can they do this without telling him, and can they take it all back at once considering it was totally their error. He's been filling in his time sheets properly.
He works for the NHS btw.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as we are stuffed atm! He has his MOT to pay for in a week and don't even have the money for that now & he needs the car to get to work.
Should've been a good wage considering he worked every single day over xmas
