Hundreds of workers from a steel mill in Belgium started the new week as rich. The workers who checked their bank accounts in the morning paid an additional amount of 30 thousand euros (184 thousands of TL).
PAYMENT OF MONEY DEBT
According to local media, some of the workers found out that it was a mistake, while others tried to pay their debts or go to the casino. A worker who does not want to give his name: "When I saw the money that was in my account, I was in shock, but it was very clear that it was a mistake and did not touch the money. The steel company Thy-Marcinelle asked the workers that they return the money.
"PAY YOU WILL PAY YOU TO YOUR DRUG"
In the incident of the Belgian city of Charleroi, some 230 workers who earned some 1600 euros a month faced a surprise while waiting to receive a bonus of 100 euros. The company will invest 30 thousand euros in the bank accounts of employees as a result of an estimated error. One of the workers said that some of his colleagues spent part of that money and said: "I know a couple went to the casino and some paid their debts." According to experts, however, the labor laws of the country are very clear in this regard.
RELATED TO THE LAW
Etienne Piret, a lawyer who spoke with the Belgian TV channel RTL, accidentally said that the total amount of money should be reimbursed in full. According to Piret, although workers act in good faith, or even if they really claim to have the right to collect this bonus, they will have to comply with this law. All they can do is request a new delay in the recovery period.
