I would like to seek advise regarding my situation. I resigned from my work but was able to receive salary for several months after my resignation date. The HR was aware of my resignation however it seems there was an error on the payroll department causing them to still send money to my payroll account. I was able to use the money because I have yet to find another job.
The day after my resignation I was able to get an email from HR advising me to complete my clearance, which I was unable to complete.
Can the company demand that I return the money? Can they take legal action?
