    These mistakes are a MASSIVE screw up on UPS's part, but how did some not know they were overpaid? It's one thing if it was $30 or so, but some were overpaid by $300-400! Did none of you actually go online and calculate your hours? That's a big difference. At least you would have been more prepared for a garnishment instead of being taken totally by surprise. Still, you all have my sympathy. Part timers don't make enough as it is, so to have even $10-20 taken out of a check is a big blow.

    File a grievance to protest that.

    Make the company, prove their case. Mistakes are made.

    With a grievance being filed.... it might give you a chance of payroll deductions.

    And they can't start the deductions, until the grievance is adjudicated.

    Pay in cash, legal tender for all debts. If they don't take it, you have no debt. Just get a receipt either way.

    Yes, file a grievance and STOP any deductions immediately. FORCE UPS to prove to you with a breakdown the error. Here in So cal, they have ERR'd on all our part timers and are asking for money back.

    Typical UPS screw up and shame on the TEAMSTERS for putting us into this mess.

    No accounting for our hours, and it SHOULDNT be our responsibility to calculate anything. UPS should have shown us an hourly breakdown and the calculations that go along with it.

    Maybe if UPS had done their job correctly, we wouldnt have to do the work for them.

    Demand it not be taken out of your paycheck. Tell them you can't afford to pay it back in one lump sum and instead setup a payment plan of .01 a week.

    Here's what I have a problem with. Employee gets a check for $1300 gross $900 net. employee is overpaid by $850 according to ups. Check should be $500 gross So the employee pays back 850 and gets to keep $50 of their $500 check?
    The company is allowing it to be deducted from multiple pay periods, I haven't a clue how many though.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Did the overpayment letter address how the taxes that were withheld on the overpayment would be handled?

    Until the company has "officially" notified the employee in writing....

    Any issue, is moot.

    They notified over ten in writing that I know of yesterday. They want them to sign papers allowing payroll deductions.

    So you get to keep $16 of a what should be $565 check? and the rest goes to that crook uncle sam? way to go payroll. They can get the money back from the government have the employee pay back all monies and completely re issue the checks but that's probably too much work.

    Exactly, that just goes to show that the company doesn't care about us at all. Just as long as they get theirs.

    Again.... file a grievance.

    Again.... file a grievance.

    If the company is right.... you have nothing to lose.

    And, they are always "right" on everything. :biggrin:
