If the money were paid by mistake - they should be paid back.

How they would be paid - should be decided between an employee and an employer.

If there is a problem for the employee to pay back in full - they should negotiate the reasonable payment plan - such as deducting from each paycheck, or any other way they both agree.


But the botXXXXX XXXXXne - if the money do not belong to the employee - they should be paid back.
