Almost 400 ex-employees will have to pay back the two months’ salary they were accidentally paid in April.
Alec Murray, non-executive chairman of the RMIF, said that due to the extremely strong financial position of the RMIF, there would be no threat to any of the functions the organisation provides.
“Due to a technical error made by the RMIF’s outsourced payroll services provider, erroneous salary payments were made to ex-staff members from the company’s former training arm Remit.
“We are extremely confident that steps already taken will quickly rectify the situation,” said Murray.
Remit was the training arm of the RMIF until it was sold to rival training group Carter & Carter for £25.5m in May 2006.
