Correcting an employee payroll overpayment

MMC Member Posts: 14


One of our employees was paid incorrectly last pay run.

She was paid Annual leave that calculated at her time and half rate instead of her ordinary rate. I need to fix this up and deduct the overpayment out of 2 pays.

Employee was paid

$3234 + $565.95 leave loading. Payg was $1192 leaving her net pay at $2607.95

She should have been paid

$2156 + $377.30 leave loading payg $584 net pay $1949.30

total overpayment net is $658.65

How can I best correct this please?

Thanks in advance
