An employee was terminated in June and paid 3 times her normal salary as severence pay. This was given to her by check which she cashed immediately. When the company ran payroll that same week, the manual check was recorded in the payroll system incorrectly causing the money to be sent to the ex employee's bank account via direct deposit. She was essentially overpaid by over $8000.00. Is it illegal for her to have used that money. She is saying she knows nothing about it.
