What would you do if you were paid MORE on your paycheck than you had earned?

I'd tell my leader who would tell HR right away, because other wise my next check, they'd take it back and I"d be short.

I would contact HR about there being an issue on my paycheck mainly in case they did something wrong and I was gonna get penalized in the future for it.

Something like this happened to my brother-in-law and my sister caught it, did a little research and it turns out they cashed out all his leave when he changed positions. And then the next paycheck they took it all back (she had to go through a lot of work to make sure the taxes all got corrected also).

About $100.

This has happened to me at 2 different jobs, with the second being just recently. When it happened at my first job I don't remember how much it was, but I told my manager right away. He turned it in to HR and they did not take back the money since I notified them.

Last week it happened at my current job. I called my manager (who has only been my manager for about a month) to see what had happened. I had completed my paperwork right, but she hadn't clicked a button that she needed to click to get my time sent in right, so I was overpaid. Since I notified her, she turned it in to Payroll and they are deducting it (don't know when, but it wasn't off last week's check, so probably in 2 weeks).

So I went home and told Tim what happened and he was just surprised that I said anything because he felt it was "free money". I explained exactly what Maureen said about worrying about ME getting penalized for the mistake and he was still just surprised. He said if it had been him, he 1) probably wouldn't have noticed because he doesn't pay that close of attention to his check, he assumes they pay what he earns and 2) would've just told them he never noticed if they did bring it up. I kinda think this is a "guy" way of thinking about it.

Of course, maybe that's why they have all the power since we ladies turn in issues like this

That's pretty much exactly what I was thinking when I read the question I never really noticed or kept track of amounts, so it would have had to be waaay off to get my attention.

I probably wouldn't have found it either, but I've been going over our income and expenses with a finetooth comb in preparation for becoming a SAHM!

I balance my checkbook every month and I would have noticed. I notice if my check is even pennies different and dig into why. I am also salary so overtime doesnt exist. My pay is exactly the same every 2 weeks.
