Payroll OFTEN makes mistakes. You’d be surprised how much money you lose because of it. My wife was always having to go down to payroll for errors they made.


Yes! I work for a company with 400,000 employees. If they “mistakenly” short everyone just a dollar a check, thats $400K every two weeks or $10,400,000 a year! Don’t think companies big and small might not try that in these crazy times.


Isn’t that shit automated at most decent companies? Don’t computers calculate your payroll these days?


Unbelievable, if you have to go through that much trouble they ought to pay you more for the time wasted fixing Their mistakes..
