California overpaid employees more than $700,000
February 6, 2016
The state paid employees from $37 to $101 in January for the December pay period, State Controller’s Office spokesman John Hill said.
The error, because the controller’s office did not increase some employees’ medical insurance withholdings, was limited to employees covered by two unions. Those over payed include 12,689 employees in the California Correctional Peace Officers Association and about 7,000 workers in the International Union of Operating Engineers Bargaining Unit 12.
State officials are still attempting to determine the total amount of over payments.
