Basically in short.


I started working for a company a few months ago. Around a month ago I quit without telling them and just didn't show up for work (wasn't happy with working conditions, nothing was being done about it). So they go through the process of firing me (organising meetings, attempting to contact me etc.) and around a month later, send me the letter to say I've been formally fired and that any money owed to be will be paid on the next pay day.

I last worked for them on the 25th of April, which was pay day. Since then I haven't gone in at all and yet on the 25th of May I got paid a months salary. Is this correct?

I haven't touched the money at all as I'm not sure where I stand, is it mine or is it theirs?

TIA

If it's the correct amount it's yours, they have to pay you hours you have worked

I haven't worked at all that month that they paid me, but I was paid on a monthly salary (fixed amount per year).

You were fired therefore they owe you all money for when you worked. If you quit then you owe them all extra pay.

from the 25th of April to the 25th of May, I was under employment by the company (until the 25th when I was fired) but did not physically attend work in this time. I was paid for the time I was still under employment by the company but not attending work. Who's is the money?

You were paid but not working without any intent of working so you shouldn't have been paid therefore you owe them the money

Take the money and run. Never speak to them again and they'll forget about it. It's an admin error at best, leave it at that.

Is it perhaps the case that you were getting paid a month in arrears? Under that circumstance the pay in May is for the work done in April.

How sure are you of this? I contacted them on May 29th (4 days after they paid into my account) and I've heard nothing since, they were notified that I wasn't sure if it was mine or not and they said they'd get back to me, nearly a month later and I've heard nothing.

Bad advice. The company has 6 years to reclaim the money. Better to sort it out now than recieve a demand for the money + interest years later

Many companies pay a month in arrears so you receive a payment a month after you've left. You'll need to check your contract to see if this is the case. If it has been an error on their part then they are legally able to obtain the money back.
