Next apologises to staff for underpaying them for months after payroll malfunction

Business / Fri 29th Jul 2022 am31 07:08am

HIGH street retailer Next has apologised to staff after a payroll error left workers underpaid for five months.

Next introduced a new payroll system from US technology firm Oracle in February 2022, but a series of issues have meant staff were short changed by up to £200 a month since.

The retailer declined to say how many employees were affected.

Errors have also affected employee pensions, as pension contributions were deducted from payslips and not invested in pension funds. 

Next promised to reimburse workers fully for this loss.

Don't people check their payslips? The failure to pay over pension contributions has very serious ramifications but should have been detected as part of the normal control account reconciliation process within the accounts dept. Presumably staff also have online access to their pension accounts
