County Going After Employees 16 Years Latter for Overpayment

In an effort to collect money to Gwinnett County in Georgia the local government has decided to go after 180 employees that were overpaid one time, 16 years ago. The irony is the overpayment occurred back then to avoid a financial hardship. Time is up on that intention it seems.

“The payroll anomaly dates back to Sept. 30, 1994, when the county adjusted employee pay cycles. The adjustment resulted in shortening one pay period from a 14 days to 12 days. Under normal circumstances, employees who worked the shortened pay cycle would have received less pay, but to avoid financial hardship, paychecks were increased to counteract any shortfall.

In all, Gwinnett County overpaid 509 people a total of $114,876.55 that week.”
