The law is that you should be paid at least 1 month's salary in lieu if you are laid off. They only called it a temporary layoff to escape paying it but God is bigger than them. It's your choice to pay them back but if you do, pay them at your own convenience. DO NOT borrow to pay them.

Find some time to go in to your former place of employment and explain the situation to them; if necessary with your bank statement. Tell them that you have not gotten another job and you cannot source the amount for now but promise to do so. Ignore those telling you to steal the money. Dishonesty is only a very short term palliative. In the long run, it could ruin you; I've seen that happen many times to friends and colleagues. Try to pay up as soon as you can without waiting for reminder and pleas to do the right thing.

Good luck.

@op go and work at the company for a month again and don't expect salary because they have already paid you in advance then the guy can have his money after a month or they should paid the guy another salary since you will work a month to pay the money mistakenly sent to your account

But why use an account that you know is on negative balance as your salary account for the company in the first place?.

I smell what is not true (lies)
I also take loans from access bank, when ever your loan is due to pay Access bank will debit from any account link to your BVN. Except you quickly transfer the money to a neutral account.

You don't have to put your self into a depressed state because of their own mistakes and also putting you off for reasons best known to them

Let the accountant follow you to the bank and see things himself

As for your other accounts, just remove whatever penny that is there so that they won't see a kobo there

Tell them to give you time to look for money as you don't have anything doing now to get money

If are asked to write under taking, you can write and if it's 2k you have at any given time you send to them and keep your records

Don't ever promise in the writing that you will pay all at a time

Let them partake in putting you through hardship, eve is it takes you a whole year to clear it, to me, it doesn't matter

Should i say, this is blessing in disguise? Maybe, you just have to work there for one month without pay, since you don't have the financial means to pay back.

Thank you! I thought the same. There's no way anyone would risk their salary like that. He has not told us the true story yet.

Only Salary account qualifies you for such loan. He isn’t lying and as for loan apps, salary account is usually the best so that an auto deduction can be done once your salary hits your account

Tanx ma'am. I will follow part of what you said. Have been trying to raise half of the money and take it to them so that they won't see me as a bad person and I can't run away because of N40,000.
Raise what money for them? It's their mistake let them deal with it. Don't squeeze money you don't have for their own matter.
Bro, look at issues from spiritual perspective and do more hard thinking.. Your situation needs to improve! Stay blessed!

Tell them to re-employ you for two months so that you can work and repay and still have some money for yourself to sustain you and your family until you secure another job Better still partake in davido's #2m giveaway.Davido is a kindhearted boy.

Brosst,

This #40k is a debt and in my experience, police don't punish anyone for not repaying debt as long as you can prove that you're really broke.

In fact, the matter will be a lot easier for you if they should inform the police. Police will only ask you how much you want to be paying per month/week/day. Even if it's #500 you can afford per month, they must accept it. Before two years you would have paid off.

But, as someone said, don't say anything like "I'll pay everything before so-so date" it's suicidal.

Police might try to intimidate you, try to get a lawyer if you can.

Thanks sis. Seriously I'm depressed and I don't want them to see me as a bad person. Have been going round to see if I can raise something and take it to the management direct

Get a statement of account which will show how the money wasn't used by you and it's unavailable at the moment due to the negative credit you had.

Go to the accountant with the bank statement and keep a photocopy to explain things and ask for a payback plan since you don't have the cash.

He never knew he would be sacked and he might have defaulted on his loan repayments by playing a fast one on access bank(Transferring his salary to another bank b4 access deducts it).That’s why the whole money was removed....the guy don over default....lol...

Good day fellow Nairalanders. Please don't mind my long note.

I got a job with a newly opened superstore in the month of November this year. I was formally with a private secondary school but I had to quit when this new job clicked. I forfeited my October salary because I didn't give the school a month notice and I didn't even know that I will get the superstore job. We did interviews during the endsars lockdown.

I had to take up the superstore job as an inventory manager because the salary is better than the school job. To cut the long story short, I resumed as the inventory manager and we were handed over our employment letter. We were two in my department (Inventory). At the end of the month (November) the staff were asked to submit account details to the accountant which we all did so we were expecting credit alert for the month of November.

The accountant didn't credit our account rather he was calling the staff one by one in his office and pay them with cash. I was not called and i was wondering what could be the cause. My colleagues asked me to go meet the accountant in his office. When I got to his office he told me that he didn't know how he wants to relate the latest development to me. So he started saying different stories and he was pacifying me. He handed my salary and another letter. I opened it and it was a "temporary lay off letter". The reason was that " budget consideration ". The superstore hasn't make much to cover staff salary. I was laid off with 3 other staff (one merchandiser, one bakery staff and one cashier).

Meanwhile it was the manager that interviewed
and she is the one I report to but it was the accountant that handed over the letter to me. The company retained My junior in the inventory department after I had put him through somethings he does not understand on the job.

I was dumbfounded and it look as if my world is coming to and end. I thought of my children and wife, my house rent. I started blaming myself for leaving my former job. I summoned courage and I left.

I got home and explained situation of things to my family. That week wasn't an happy week for us considering the fact we are approaching the month of December (festive season).

Meanwhile I have another side hustle I engaged in during weekends but its not fetching much money and the stress was too much; I collapsed and I was hospitalized for two weeks.
On the 28th of this month I received a call from the accountant that he mistakenly transfer the sum of N40,000 into my account that I should please forward the money back to the superstore account number. The manager also called me. But my phone mouthpiece has been very bad since Christmas day. I used to manage my wife's phone anytime I have important calls. That faithful morning I took my phone to the engineer and I went to collect it in the afternoon thinking the phone is ok but the mouthpiece is still not working fine. So since the accountant couldn't hear me, I sent him a text that my phone is faulty and that I will call him back as soon as I fix it again. The following day which is today I took the phone back to the engineer. And I went straight to the superstore to ascertain what really happened. So he told me he mistakenly sent the sum of N40,000 to my account and that the money was December salary for the second guy in the inventory department. and that I should pls forward the money back to the company's account and that the company is on his neck. And I explained to him that I don't usually receive funds in that particular account because i took a loan from access bank which is overdue and I'm yet to pay them. And even if I receive money in that account I will transfer it immediately to my kuda account and i showed him my kuda atm card but in his own case now when he transferred the money I wasn't with my phone it was with the engineer and I wasn't expecting transfer from anybody. And I told him that when he and the manager were calling me the engineer didn't fix the mouthpiece well and I was on my way to ijaiye. I told him I went to drop the phone back this morning and I will go and check my access bank app to see if transactions occur because I didn't receive any credit alert. Alas when I collected my phone back and I checked the app I saw the 40k credit and access bank had already debited me for the loan.

I don't know what to do now because he is begging me to please refund the money into the company's account and I have been trying to borrow from access bank again but the bank keeps telling me I am not qualify for a loan at this time. I don't have salary job at the moment and there is nowhere I can get money to repay the company. I wish to refund them so that I won't look like a bad or dubious person to them. He has been calling me on phone but I don't know how to break the news to him.

Pls what can I do in this kind of situation?
Was it the whole money acess bank took as loan repayment? If not why don't you show good faith by forwarding the balance and come out clean by showing the manager your statement showing acess bank actually made a loan repayment debit.

If your story is true, then you deserve urgent help. But considering the fact that many dubious people with formats like this won't allow us know genuine ones in need. If you can upload evidence of the employment and layoff to substantiate your story, I'm willing to assist you @OP......

Tell him to go fūck himself.

You don't have the money at present moreover they treated you in a shabby manner, making you lose a steady job/income when they probably knew they only needed temporary staff to cover a single month. Tell him you will do a payment plan once you get another job, it's not a crime to owe people money, it's only a crime if you obtain the funds under false pretences.
