The HSU has become aware of an overpayment issue arising from a Covid payment that was incorrectly applied to staff at Jessie Hunt and Robert Young.
You can view an extract from the Whiddon Enterprise Agreement which specifically discusses overpayment at this link.
With any overpayment your employer may recover the amount. However, if the proposed repayment will put you in a position of financial hardship, you can write to your manager advising of this and request a suitable repayment plan.
