Use this workflow to deal with an accidental overpayment made to a current employee.
The employer must act quickly once it discovers the error and attempt to obtain the employee's consent either to a deduction or deductions being made from the employee's salary, or to a repayment or series of repayments.
This workflow should be used only where there has been an overpayment of wages or employment-related expenses.
This workflow is an example of a legally compliant process. Where your organisation's own procedures go beyond the procedure set out in this workflow, you should follow these.
