So, HR from my ex-company reached out after I left the company saying they did a mistake and overpaid me for a week I was off, and I need to payback the money. I was a contractor and paid hourly for the hours worked. If I take time off, I wasn’t getting paid. I submitted my timesheet correctly notifying them of my unpaid leave. So what would you do? Pay the money back as that’s the right thing to do? Or don’t respond to their calls and msgs anymore as I don’t foresee working for them again ?
Pay back the money. It's not yours.
