A guy who was unintentionally paid 286 times his monthly income resigned from the firm and vanished after pledging to reimburse his employer for the overpayment in Chile.
One of Chile’s biggest makers of cold cuts, Consorcio Industrial de Alimentos (Cial), employed the guy. According to local media, the employer was mistakenly given 165,398,851 Chilean pesos (about Rs. 1.42 crore) rather than the 500,000 pesos (roughly Rs. 43,000) to which he was entitled.
The worker reported the payment issue to a deputy manager in the human resources division.
The employee had been incorrectly paid roughly 286 times his monthly wage, according to data reviewed by the company’s management. The employee was requested to repay the overpayment.
The employee reportedly agreed to visit his bank to get a return of the overpayment made to him. He doesn’t appear to want the money back, though.
The employer attempted to contact the employee when the bank failed to notify them of a refund, but their messages went unanswered.
Later, the man called, saying he overslept and would go to the bank.
However, he submitted his resignation on June 2 and has since supposedly vanished.
To reclaim the funds, they unintentionally provided to the individual, the business filed a lawsuit against him.
