Overpaid employees fail to flag up payroll errors

Almost
half of UK employees have been overpaid because of payroll errors but 30 per
cent kept quiet and pocketed the cash.

A new
survey by ICM research shows that 44 per cent of staff had been paid too much
by their employer with 36 per cent of payroll errors worth £250 or more.

The
poll of 600 UK workers also found that many companies failed to monitor payroll
effectively and had to rely on the honesty of staff to police the system.

Scottish
staff are the most dishonest with only 20 per cent revealing an error, while 36
per cent of staff in the South East flagged up mistakes with bosses.
