My question involves employment and labor law for the state of: Pennsylvania
My very recent former employer direct deposited a paycheck for me today that I believe is in error. I realize that they are perfectly entitled to reverse it if they determine it was not owed to me.
1) For what time frame are they permitted to reverse it? e.g. a year, etc
2) To what lengths are they permitted to go to recover the amount, should the funds be withdrawn and the account closed (this question is purely informational)
3) Do I have any obligation to proactively contact them regarding this?
- the payroll department is error prone; I've had numerous issues with both benefits and pay over the 6 years of employment
- I was an exempt employee in very good standing when I left
- last day on the payroll was 3/18
- I should receive a direct deposit advice on Tuesday, as they mail today, which would detail what the pay is for
Clearly, I am going to let it sit there, at least until I receive the DD advice. O
