- Payroll Overpaymentson June 27, 2014 at 5:53 pm

Other reasons include terminated employees who receive vacation time before it was earned and sales people whose commission was too large. Regardless of how often or the reason overpaying an employee occurs, the employee is responsible for repaying the money when it is demanded. An error is not an automatic entitlement to keep unearned money.

Improper classification of employees can have severe consequences. If misclassified, employees may lose overtime compensation and other rights to which they may be entitled. These may sometimes be recouped through subsequent litigation. On the other hand, if employers misclassify employees, the employers may face substantial liability for unpaid overtime compensation, liquidated or double damages, prejudgment interest, and attorneys fees. 29 U.S.C. § 216. In some circumstances, employers incur such liability because they attempt to apply the wrong exemption, even though they could have used a different exemption or exception to avoid overtime liability.
