I have been working at my job over 10yrs, I have always work. Last summer, I was getting my first unempolyment check, second I didn't received any, I call my job to find out what is going! They have make a mistakes, gave unemployment agency the wrong information, stated that I worked all year around, no I only worked 10 month, because of this, my boss gave me a loan for 2 month to cover, plus a job to work, even though I was making less money, I went out to investigated this, find out at the end of August, that I was able to get unemployment check. I was very disappoint, because I have to pay the money back every month, they are taking $175 , $400 for 12 month, and all of suddent ,they saying that they over pay me $1400 . They are taking $200 also . They is too much money to take out every month. I feel that they shoudn't taking the last part of $1400.00 . Do they have the right to take out how much they want to take out? I barely pay my rent, etc. Now that I have to work second
If they actually did overpay you, even if it was their mistake, then they are entitled to collect for the overpayment. The only right you have is to attempt to negotiate with the employer to lower the monthly payments and extend the time to repay. If the employer refuses, I am afraid the laws do not help you on this.
