Submission + - Laid-off Microsoft workers to keep overpayment (nwsource.com)

ProfM writes: More details about the Microsoft layoffs are emerging. Least of all, they're reversing the demand for repayment. In addition, there were only 25 affected ex-employees for a grand total of the "error" ranging from $100k to $125k.

Human-resources chief Lisa Brummel called each of the 25 — part of the 1,400 people notified Jan. 22 in the company's first widespread job cuts — to personally explain the "clerical error" that caused the overpayment, and inform them they could keep the extra dough, ranging from a couple hundred dollars to more than $5,000.

My guess was the cost for the lawyers to recover the money was more than what was overpaid.
