Microsoft Lets Fired, Overpaid Employees Keep Extra Cash

Fox News writes: "On Monday, it was revealed that Microsoft accidently overpaid some of the 1,400 employees it laid off last month and asked them for the money back.

The company reversed course late Monday and said the laid-off workers could keep the extra payouts.

Lisa Brummel, Microsoft's senior vice president for human resources, said the letters were mailed to 25 of the 1,400 people let go in January and that most of the checks were off by about $4,000 to $5,000."

The story is too old to be commented.

So, after word got out on the net, they figured out the PR nightmare this situation would cause, and reversed it.

Imagine my surprise.
