  • Delaware law re: recouping overpayment

    Can anyone tell me what methods an employer can use to recoup overpayment from an employee who has resigned? A family member resiged a from a corporation nearly two months ago and received her final paycheck. It included payout for unused sick/vacation time, which the company incorrectly calculated. What is the former employee's obligation to repay if she was unaware of the error and spent the money? Thank for your assistance.

    Well, the employer might file a lawsuit to get it back if it isn't paid back voluntarily.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
