This is totally not fair. You should contact your trade union representative straight away, you should no let them get away with this

Call your state's labor relations board or contact an attorney.

If they truly did over pay you in your last check or ones before that, there is nothing you can do. Especially if you knew about it. If you didn't know about it, and this is all a big surprise to you I would try to talk to them, explain to them that its the holidays and could they deduct a little from each future check that you get to make up for it, due to the fact that you didn't not know you were overpaid. If they did not over pay you and it is an error on their part, i don't think there is much you can do unless you go a long while without being paid. Good Luck.

Although this isn't fair, you need to just be patient. I have had this problem on my job, and it is usually a temprorary problem, but they cannot just pay you and then have you have to pay back more. What has happened in my case, is if they have overpaid me in the past, they would take it off the pay cheque of what they have been owed to me. So you will still get paid a pay cheque at some point, but they have to figure out how much of the money that they have to take off. If they pay you this pay cheque without taking it off, and they do the same error this time, then you would end up owing way more back to the company, so that is why they are doing it now. I hope that you can understand this.

They should pay you now and then ask you to pay them back after they've figured out "what's gone wrong", not simply withhold your wages now with no notice! Tell them to prove that you have been overpaid for starters ... it sounds like they're not actually sure that you have been.

Your only hope really is to argue with them ... remain polite and calm, as obviously they've got the upper hand here, but don't let the matter drop.

Legally, there isn't really anything you can do. The problem is that should they refuse to pay up at all then there are obviously legal channels that you can go through, but these can take up to a year to negotiate so won't make a difference to the fact that you have no money now. If you were to contact DWP then they do have some kind of crisis loan, but I'm not sure that this would apply to you since it seems that you are in employment and will be being paid next week.
