Question description

Ken, a salaried employee, was terminated from his company in April of this year. Business had been slow since the beginning of the year, and each of the operating plants had laid off workers.

Ken's dismissal was processed through Human Resources, but the information was not relayed to the corporate payroll office.

As had been the policy, checks for workers at remote sites were mailed to the employees. The mailing of Ken's checks continued for the next four weekly paydays. It was not until the monthly payroll reports were sent to Ken's supervisor that the error was detected.

Ken refused to return the four extra checks. What actions should the company take to reclaim the money, if any? What should the company do to ensure this does not happen again in the future?

What and how can certain laws apply to this?
