Worker disappears after he was accidentally paid more than 300 times his salary

According to accounts, a worker in Chile filed his resignation and was nowhere to be located after his employer unintentionally paid him around 330 times his wage due to a payroll error.

The employee’s pay for the month of May was 165,398,851 Chilean pesos ($180,418). They were a dispatch assistant at the cold meats producer Consorcio Industrial de Alimentos. Only roughly $545, or 500,000 Chilean pesos, were intended to be given to him.

According to the local media outlet Diario Financiero, the employee first informed his manager about the significant overpayment.

The employee would then be required to visit his bank and repay the excess money after the management reported the situation to human resources.

He promised to visit the bank the following day, but instead, he kept the cash and disregarded his employer’s contacts over the following few days.

He said he would go to the bank the next day, but he kept the money and ignored his employer’s contacts throughout the next few days.

The worker is the subject of a complaint from Consorcio Industrial de Alimentos that claims he stole money, but no arrests have been made as of yet.

The man subsequently submitted a letter of resignation to the business, which was sent by his attorney. Since then, no one has heard from the employee, according to Diario Financiero.
