Re: Continuing To Receive Direct Deposit After Terminating Employment
if yourecieved money that you should not have, it is not your money and must be returned to the originator. If you attempt to keep the money, you will be held accountable when the mistake is discovered and would be required to repay it. If you fail to do so, they will take action to recover the money. If you play with this long enough, it could become a criminal matter and you could be tried for it.
Contact your former employer. Tell them of the mistake. Ask them to correct the improper payments and the two of you decide how the money is to be returned to them.
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
