This information replaces FIS 401-06 Payroll Errors


Effective: 01/01/2003
Revised: 03/10/2016



Overpayment to an employee may occur due to various errors caused by incorrect data, data entry or late paperwork. All overpayments must be reported by the Business Centers completing an Overpayment Notice.  These notifications are sent to Central Payroll for processing. See PAY 701-01Overpayments and Collections in the Payroll (PAY) Manual for specific information.

If the employee is still working for OSU and has regularly scheduled pay, the overpayment may be deducted from the employee’s future pay. If the employee is no longer working at OSU, a letter will be sent requesting payment. Note: Overpayments to classified employees will be collected in accordance with the SEIU contract.
