I recently ended employment as a salaried worker with a large corporation. I have just received one more paycheck as if I was still an employee of that corporation, for the full amount that I would normally receive. While I think I may be owed some money for vacation days I didn't use, it's certainly nowhere near a full paycheck. I think the corporation has overpaid me, and possibly may have not taken me off the payroll.
I sent an email to my boss asking him about the paycheck. What kind of a result should I expect? Normally in this situation your overpaid wages would be taken from your future wages, but I'm not going to have any future wages. Will I be writing the company a check? I definitely don't want to get sued.
Update: Although it took them until April of next year, they finally got around to agreeing that I had been overpaid. They are requesting that I pay them back, which I can do in stages if it is not possible for me to pay it all at once. Situation resolved. Thank you for your assistance.
