Ooops….We Made A Mistake: Give The Money BACK!


handing over money sized opt Ooops....We Made A Mistake: Give The Money BACK!

Imagine getting a bonus….and then SIXTEEN YEARS LATER, your boss telling you: Sorry, we made a mistake, NOW you have to GIVE IT BACK! True story…

About 180 county employees in suburban Atlanta are being asked to return thousands of dollars the county says they were overpaid 16 years ago. The county is seeking to collect more than $39,000 from employees who received bonuses in their paychecks in 1994. Authorities blamed the overpayments on a payroll anomaly when the county adjusted employees’ payroll cycles. Employees can apply the money to vacation leave or make a cash payment.

When a company makes a mistake like this, should there be a time limit on “catching it”? How upset would YOU be if this happened to YOU?
