  • overpayment of wages North Carolina

    This past year from August to April I was overpayed by my employer. I am no longer employeed with them, but of course I know that I am resposible for paying them back and have agreed to do so already. However, they are trying to get ugly about it and insist that i pay it back in a year even though at this time I can't afford to pay all of my bills and current obligations and pay that large of a monthly payment to them. Is there any way they could take money from me that i don't have? and if they took me to court over it, would the judge not look at my finances and see that I don't have an income that allows for that kind of a payment? all of this knowing that i am willing to send them checks every chance possible...two weeks, one week, etc.

    See if you can work out a payment agreement with them. If they accept, pay them on time, every time! If they refuse to work out a payment plan with you, there's not much you can do. If they sue, you can explain your situation to the judge and hope for a sympathetic ear and hope that the judge can get the company to agree to a payment plan, but there's no gaurantee.

    With the judgement, the company may be able to garnish your wages, bank account, etc.


    Good Luck!
