You can absolutely give them a lump sum payment, however, your employer is barred from requesting that you do so. The law in Tennessee requires that, in the event of over payment, your employer deduct up to a maximum amount per paycheck. Of course, if you want to just get this dealt with immediately you can offer to pay the entire amount back in full. Just make sure you get a receipt, or put something in writing showing that the amount has been paid back so that you do not have to deal with any problems in the future.
