Paycheck Crisis Addressed

September 28th, 2011 at 12:35 pm

Ok, it's addressed, but not solved. When last we left this debacle, the state owed me over $700 for their overcharging me on my health insurance.
Payroll says I should wait until November 1 for the money. I say I should have it now, I should have it now in unmarked 20s in a brown paper bag on my front step.

I do feel like they're holding me hostage actually. It's not my fault, it's their fault. I haven't been paid since June, and I want the money.

End of grumbling, but there will be more as this story develops.

    Um, as a "sometimes involved in payroll" person, I know better than to ask anyone to wait for a $700 mistake to get fixed. Much less someone who has not been paid since June! Big Grin I'd be like getting death threats or something - people just flip out when it comes to their paychecks. I mean - I've had people flip out over $5 because we changed systems and their withholding calculates a little different. Rolleyes

    Geesh! The nerve!

    Seriously? They want you to wait five weeks for their error? No way! They need to cut a new check pronto.

    So unfair - hope it gets sorted out soon!

    I'm amused as someone who deals with payroll people. They are the first to go ballistic if something happens, and its usually their fault. I'm betting its that your employer's afraid of its employer (State of WI). Perhaps a little bit of bad press would speed things along?

    They do this all the time. A colleague is teaching an overload, and because he wasn't given the contract until a week before school started, they're not paying him for it until December. If I hear nothing from them on this by Monday, I'm going over there to take one of them hostage. It's not like I'm going to starve without it; we'll move some money, but still, just thinking about it makes me crazy.

    Thanks for your support. Really. It helps.

    As someone who's solely responsible for paying 500+ employees each week, I'll tell you that 99.9% of the time it's NOT my fault. Fault usually lies with other people sending me wrong information. That said, if someone sent me information that caused that big an error in your paycheck, you bet I can get a check cut TODAY and get it to you by tomorrow. No problem at all. It's entirely unreasonable that they "can't" fix this sooner than later.
