(name of employer deleted) has overpaid it's employees an approximate total of $58 mil. (they) have sent my wife a letter informing us that they will deduct from my wifes pay due to their past overpayment errors. We have paid taxes on the the money. They have offered a settlement for the net but their due date is the same date that our property taxes are due.
I am aware of:
CSEA v. State of California (1988) 198 Cal.App.3d 374 (Unlawful to deduct from current payroll for past salary advances that were in error)
- and I contacted our local Cal. Dept. of Industrial Relation
However do these laws pertain to Unions? Does Anybody know anything about the contract or what we should do. If we pay the settlement amount we will have to pay interest on a loan. Seems very unfair!
