Hi me again I seem to be posting a lot lately , I am a key worker ( social care worker ) and Iv been earning a little more the last few months as have been required to work lots of overtime , I have done the 50/50 rule with my iva practitioner , but I have just seen that the government changed the guidelines last year with iva ‘s allowing key workers to keep 100% of any overtime , I entered into a iva mid pandemic last year and my iva practitioner is fully aware of my occupation and I do explain each time when paying my overtime into the iva it’s because Iv picked up extra shifts , I feel I bit betrayed that they did not inform me I could keep 100% of my overtime being a care worker ,
Am I in my right to demand them to give me the money back that I have paid in ? Or is it to late now . Thank you
You should quote Section 3, Para 1.11: "Paragraph 10.4 of the protocol should not apply to critical workers’ overtime during the COVID-19 pandemic. A critical worker is defined by the list published by the Government and determined by the employer. Additional proof of critical worker status may be required by the supervisor."
I have spoken to my ip about it , and they have said that I need to wait until my review in June where they will look into if I have over paid or not and will issue me a refund then , they didn’t say my information was incorrect . So I shall wait and see
