SEATTLE — A few weeks after launching the first wide-scale layoffs in its history, Microsoft admits it screwed up a key part of the plan.
The company is asking some laid-off employees for a portion of their severance back, saying an administrative glitch caused the software maker to pay them too much.
Lou Gellos, a Microsoft spokesman, would not say how many of the 1,400 workers let go in January were overpaid, or by how much. Microsoft has said severance would be calculated by length of service and position in the company.
The Redmond, Wash.-based software maker is asking former employees for reimbursement, by check or money order, within two weeks, according to a redacted letter posted by the technology blog TechCrunch. Gellos confirmed the letter's authenticity.
Mebbe Microsoft was using MS Excel instead of Quickbooks :-P
I never met Furp. He's going to be missed by many, and to those who met him, my condolences.
Parties are more fun when you wear a fursuit. Great party Dark! Thanks!
I'm doing what 90% of us is doing I guess: looking for photos and video of our fursuits in random posts on our friends'-O-friends obscure LJs.
