I have a question po regarding on my Last Pay. I was on maternity leave and was receiving a pay on my payroll.
I thought my employer was generous because they included me in the payroll and at the same time paying in advance the SSS maternity benefit.

After 21/2 months I got back from Maternity Leave but no one notify or informed me that I should not paid in payroll during my Maternity leave until such I filed my resignation.

When I resigned in the company, I was cleared as my clearance was signed off by HR, finance and other departments. When I send a follow up for my final pay check, the HR informed me that there was an over payment on my payroll due to maternity as I was paid on payroll for that time. They only knew that I was overpaid when they calculate my final pay. They will offset the over payment on my last pay (13th month/hold salary/leave conversion/tax refund) and in return I'll be the one paying my Employer due to negative amount/offsetting.

Just want to seek an advice if do they have the right to offset the over payment on my last pay even if it is not my fault and it is their negligence. They just knew because I resigned and suddenly the would immediately offset it on my last pay.

Thank you and hoping you could assist me on this matter.

Yes of course. No one should be unjustly enriched at the expense of another.
