From time to time University of Calgary Payroll may make errors whereby an academic staff member is over-paid by the institution. The Faculty Association has had concerns with how repayment may have been handled by Payroll in the past. Payroll cannot recover compensation and take deductions from a paycheque without the explicit consent from the employee, nor can they dictate the terms of the repayment (size/frequency of payments, etc.). The Association has been assured by Payroll that the employer is seeking the explicit consent of academic staff for repayment when errors occur. If any academic staff members have questions or concerns please contact the Faculty Association.
Recovery of payroll errors requires explicit consent
