Q. My company accidentally overpaid two employees last pay period. How may we recoup that overpayment?

A. In North Carolina, an overpayment of wages due to a miscalculation or bona fide error is considered a prepayment of wages, and the amount of overpayment may be withheld or deducted from the employee’s future wages.
