Gwinnett workers asked to return 1994 bonuses

  • Follow Latest News

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga.  - About 180 Gwinnett County employees are being asked to return thousands of dollars the county says they were overpaid 16 years ago.

Aaron Bovos, Gwinnett County chief financial officer, called it a project to "clean up receivables and to eliminate outstanding obligations."

The county is seeking to collect $39,690.46 from employees who received bonuses in their paychecks in 1994.

Authorities say a payroll anomaly back in 1994 resulted in shortening one pay period from a 14 days to 12 days. Normally, employees who worked the shortened pay cycle would have received less pay, but to avoid financial hardship, paychecks were increased.

Employees are able to apply the advance to vacation leave or they can make a cash

This is a joke right ? They

This is a joke right ? They are attempting to recover a bonus that was paid to employees back in 1994 ????? I am more than positive that the little bit of money that they paid the employees has more than been recovered by the other monies the county screwed them out of for the 16 years after the bonus was paid !! Looks like the hope-y change-y thing is working just fine for these county employees ! Way to screw over the working class Americans there Lawrenceville !!

Puh leese! Altogether it's

Puh leese! Altogether it's not that much money compared with what it will cost to collect it. Then think of all the hard feelings and bad PR.
Good sense would have left this alone.
