    I just received my wages and its 800 pound more than I expected. I dont want to give back as its a massive company and its not like its gonna hurt them. On the other hand I dont want them to say givr back the money in few months time. What would you do?

    give it back. A.) you’ll have your integrity and B.) some companies try to trap you by overpaying you too see if you’ll steal it. I’ve heard of it happening before

    It's probably because you haven't been fully taxed. If it's a new role or your first job, they calculate the correct code of tax + insurance after your first 11.5k

    There's not such thing as overpaid. They gave it, then take it. That's their mistake, not yous. They underpay me and then I screw them. Thanks to justice!

    Well legally they can still get it back from you. Some people get overpaid for months without knowing and end up owing the company everything they were overpaid

    since you know, it’s better to return it and not eat haram money or waste time going through the hassle later

    Speak to HR and find out what it is though first. Are you sure it’s not a bonus?

    Give them the money back that, sxb; it's equivalent to not returning extra change when you're at the cashier in the grocery market. You're essentially stealing from the company.
