Adjust Payments Issued in Error


F/EA strives to issue all payments correctly when they are initially issued.  However, in some rare cases, checks may be issued in error.  Some possible errors include:

  1. Worker or vendor is paid for a different number of hours or units of service than were actually provided.
  2. The incorrect amount of tax is withheld from an workers paycheck.
  3. The check is issued to the incorrect payee.

Immediately upon identifying an error in payment, the error is researched by appropriate staff and corrective action is taken.  Corrective action may include:

  1. Issuing a supplemental check or direct deposit to correct an underpayment.
  2. Voiding a payment.
  3. Voiding and re-issuing a payment.
