The ASU has been advised of an overpayment claim affecting Support Workers at Council. This occurred due to a system error where miscalculation of travel allowance was paid.
As it is an overpayment Council are within their rights to recoup the funds. We understand that council has provided 3 possible repayment options;
- Make a one-off payment for the total sum, as a deduction from Pay Period 18: 8/2/21 – 21/2/21.
- Make the payment over six pay periods as a deduction commencing from Pay Period 18: 8/2/21 – 21/2/21.
- Individual plan considering personal circumstances.
If members require assistance in negotiating an individual plan please contact the ASU on email@example.com or 1300 855 570.
