has anyone had to pay their occupational mat pay back? how did they collect it ?
hi, i work for the nhs doing 12 hour shifts both days and nights and now my return date is looming. i have worked out that childcare and travel costs will now be almost the same as my income. Ill now be paying for 2 children but the main problem is that the bus service has reduced its service so i will now have to rely on taxis which will cost £30 a day or take the bus option which will take 4 hours to get home after finishing work as a result!
I had intended on returning and leaving after 3 months (i wont have to pay back omp if i do) however given the amount of strain this will put on my family and my finances ( my eldest son and OH hated me working such long hours before so now this will be so much worse) i am debating whether i should just leave and agree to pay it back as im damned either way.
However, i dont know how quickly the money has to be paid back and i dont want to ring HR because if it is immediate they may ask me to repay now which isnt possible.
I am hoping that i can repay in installments and get a pt job elsewhere when my mat leave is up.
why don't u just get a sickline from ur doctor for 3months and then leave. that's still classed as returning and u won't have to pay it back. tell the doctor ur not ready to return, baby is not sleeping, etc, etc.
Not sure how you go about paying it back, I'm NHS as well. Have you taken all your holidays as well as they count towards the 3 months you need to work when you go back. I start next week and am due to go back in October but get new holidays from April 2012. I will have accrued around 14 days by then so those would count towards the 3 months I would need to work when I return (plus the holidays accrued during the 3 months working, so another 7 or so days).
I checked with my manager about this and she told me I def had to return for 1 month or pay back omp. However on checking with HR ( I just told them I needed to know my options and what the policy is I have to adhere to re returning to work/not returning to work) HR have confirmed they would never make me repay opm. I know each employer has different rules but maybe best to check with your HR to get the facts.
slightly different but i got allegedly overpaid when i worked for the council in that last wage. they sent me an invoice and 28 days to pay it in full. after that they sent it to a debt collection agency and had threatening letters. i would go on sick for 3 months tbh x
