Legal Question

Asked on: 12/02/12, 5:50 pm

My friend was laid off his job awhile ago but is still receiving paychecks after a couple of weeks. He thought it just might be money he was owed but it has been over a month now and they are still coming. He has called the company or said anything about it. Can the company come after him or will he eventually have to pay it back?

Depending on exactly what the payments are for, your friend may indeed have to reimburse the company for the payments. He should call the company's payroll office and ask about the payments. Not doing so can lead to all kinds of horrible things, including criminal charges.

Your friend should file for unemployment insurance benefits and jobhunt like mad.
