PTO deducted by mistake
Hello, I have a confusing situation that I need help with. We had an employee who went on FMLA leave due to birth of a child. She did not make arrangments to pay for benefits or any deductions that were coming out of her paycheck while on leave. I did not receive anything from her stating that she did not want to take her leave unpaid (the Company allows this). We paid 80 hours of her leave with PTO that was in her PTO bank, so she received 1 full paycheck and never mentioned anything about wanting her leave to be unpaid. I contacted her about paying for her insurance for the following month and that is when she said she did not want to use her PTO and offered to pay it back. I know that she cannot do this but what other options do we have in order to put the PTO back into her account? Can we withold a paycheck for 1 payperiod and put that amount into her PTO bank? We get paid bi weekly.
