Worker who was accidentally paid 300 times his salary takes the money and runs
What would you do if you checked your bank account and found you had mistakenly been paid 300 times your normal salary?
Well, one employee who discovered he had been paid nearly £150,000 for a month’s work instead of the usual £450 decided to duck and run.
A worker in Chile submitted his resignation and could not be found after his job accidentally paid him about 330 times his salary because of a payroll error, according to reports. The unnamed staff member at Consorcio Industrial de Alimentos in Chile did initially raise the eye-watering overpayment for May with his manager who then flagged it to HR.
He agreed to return the cash and promised to go to the bank the following day. But instead of giving it back, the man withdrew it and hasn’t been seen since.
His employer Consorcio tried to make contact with the man over the next three days but to no avail, according to local media outlet Diario Financiero.
They later received contact from the unnamed man’s lawyers who informed Consorcio that the man had resigned from his position with the company.
After no sign of contact, bosses at the company decided to file a complaint with law officials charging the man with misappropriation of fund.
The average take home pay in Chile is £750 a month, £300 more than the unnamed man was receiving.
The Aurangabad bench of the Bombay High Court, earlier this month while hearing bail plea of two accused booked for sexually assaulting a 17-year-old girl, expressed displeasure over the acts of father of the victim of “donating” his daughter to a “baba” (godman), by executing ‘daanpatra’ (deed of donation). The Aurangabad Bench of the Bombay High Court took strong exception to the act of a father "donating" his daughter to a baba while hearing the bail plea of accused for sexually assaulting the 17-year-old. [Shankeshwar @ Shambhu s/o Bhausaheb Dhakne and Anr. v. State of Maharashtra & Anr.] "When the girl as per her own statement is minor, then why the father who is in all respect guardian of the girl should give the girl as Daan ? A girl is not a property which can be given in donation," the Court remarked. The two applicants for bail was accused of sexually assaulting a minor girl, who lived with her father in the temple premises where a Baba lived with his
A few months ago, Mark Zuckerberg brought metaverse into the forefront of buzzy tech by rebranding Facebook to Meta and expounding his vision for Horizon Home, an early vision for a home base in the metaverse. Even before dust settled on the Connect 2021 announcement , a middle aged American couple Dave and Traci Gagnon jumped the bandwagon by planning the "world’s first" wedding in the metaverse. Perhaps taking a leaf out of Gagnon’s playbook, an Indian couple from the state of Tamil Nadu is scheduled to hold their wedding reception in the metaverse, inviting guests to login in virtually from around the world. Dinesh Kshatriyan and Janaganandhini Ramaswamy plan to host their reception in the virtual dining room of Hogwarts castle. In a tweet announcing this move , Dinesh said I feel so proud and blessed that I have seen and taken advantage of many great opportunities in this world before millions of people have seen them, Beginning of something big! India’s first #metave
I happen to be a product of Indian IT. Having lived and worked in a dozen countries across across three continents, I have seen layoffs and its impact up-close. The question is very apt and timely given the news accounts of ‘thousands’ of layoffs by Indian IT Firms. (My2cents on that topic “ What is the reason behind the layoffs in IT firms in India? Is it related to the H-1B visa, or some other reason?”) Although the Indian media is fixated on the term ‘layoff,’ some of it is voluntary headcount reduction etc. In the short-term, layoff is hard. Loosing a job is hard for obvious reasons. However, I have also seen many successful guys and ladies use the opportunity for self-reflection. If you are (relatively) young and happen to be laid off, you should begin by reflecting on your career thus far - you may realize that jumping back to yet another coding, software engineering or project management role is not really your cup of tea.
