For the last four years, I have been working part time at an electronics store here where I live, mostly to have something to do from time to time. Yesterday I was told that he couldnt afford to pay me anymore, so I would be let go. He did give me something like a severance pay, which is a percentage of my pay calculated by what I make a month and by how many years I have been working there. That was 2075€. Here in Greece, we get bonuses three times a year; half our monthly pay during Easter, half our monthly pay when we take a vacation, and 100% of our pay during Christmas. I was making 700€ a month there, so he added 350€ for the Easter bonus to the 2075€, and 350€ for the vacation bonus to the 2075€. Then, I had 25 days of vacation time this year, which he has to pay, so that is another 700€ he paid. So in total, counting the change, it came out to 3507€. He deposited that, along with the 700€ for my time last month, which equals around 4200€. Now, here is where it gets interesting. His wife went to the bank yesterday around 1pm to deposit that money, and as soon as she came back to the store, I went to the bank to see what was deposited, and the total was that 4200€ number. I went to the bank this morning, and took out 500€ from my account, and the statement said that I had 3500€, so I was short 200€, 187€ to be exact. After looking over the pay stubs that I signed for the severance package, the total was suppose to be 4013€, which is 187€ less than the 4200€. What happened was, he deposited the whole bonus for Easter, when it should have been prorated because I only worked two months this year, and Easter here in Greece is in May. So he deposited more money than he should have, then removed it. Now, I understand that he made a mistake, but he deposited 4200€ into my account, which is now my money. He noticed the mistake two hours after his wife deposited the money, went to the bank, spoke to one of the managers there, and they removed the money from my account without notifying me, or without me present to sign anything. Wouldnt that be considered illegal? How can a bank go into my account, without my authorization, and remove money? I dont have any loans with this bank, as I only used it to have my pay deposited, so I didnt have any balances to pay. I know that its only 187€, but what is really bothering me the most is what I just said, that I was not present when this transaction occurred with MY account. This is like me going to the bank and asking for Bill Gates' money without his consent, or even awareness. Im going to go to the bank on Monday and see what exactly went on, but Im actually thinking about going to my lawyer first, and see what he has to say. Thoughts?
