Microsoft wants refund from some laid off workers | Microsoft – CNET News.

the best way to correct the error is with what will likely add up to a public relations blunder.

The software giant, which recently laid off 1,400 employees, sent letters (see image below) this week to some of those former workers letting them know that their severance payouts were a bit too “generous” and respectfully requested that the former employees pay back that money, according to a report Saturday on TechCrunch.

function pollPop() {
pollwin=window.open(”,’pollwin’,’width=400,height=270,status=no,scrollbars=no,resizable=yes,toolbar=no’);
document.forms[“myForm”].submit();
}

“An inadvertent administrative error occurred that resulted in an overpayment in severance pay by Microsoft,” the letter states. “We ask that you repay the overpayment and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience to you.”
