Hello; I have created a new account and if admin can please delete once this thread and finished that would be great. If you feel the need to delete now I'll just say I really need to ask advice of many knowledged individuals on this site and NetRider doesn't have an annoymous posting opition like some other forums, eg; aussiestreetbikes. Could we look into that one day? But enough of that. I effectively resigned / took leave without pay several months ago. My remaining leave pay was due to be paid out in the next months pay cycle (monthly pay) and I thought I was to receive $3000. I received $3500. At that time I thought I just miscalulated my remaining leave. What is slightly od, is my monthly pay cheque was a touch over that amount normally, something like $3567 or something. Then, the next month, when nothing should of been due, I was paid another $1500. I figured I really miscalulatored my leave hours and didn't give it too much thought and just had a happy smile on. The description in my NetBank on the $1500 was different to all the normal pay's I've had previously from this company, so I figured it was a manual entry from someone in pay/HR and thought that was it. The following 2 months nothing came through so I never thought any more of it again. This month I received $1400, again, with a strange pay description like the $1500 pay description. Now, do I tell my work and possiably have to pay it back? Because simply I don't have the first $1500 to pay - I've spent it. Do I just leave it and hope they don't notice? (global company with pay managed by a seperate company for Australia). What is my legal standing? Can they ask for it back? Now I offically took leave without pay - but the only difference between LWOP and Resigning is; nothing - one just pisses off your boss and one keeps your email open. Actual benifits and leave pay outs are identical. Anyone have any advice on this? Thanks in advance (in case this account is closed). Side note; I don't like my old company, and I don't even intend on returning - if that makes any difference - probably not legally.
