Does anyone know where I might find rules or laws governing an employer's right to recover overpayments to employees? Specifically, I am looking for the laws that would govern a company's right to recover an overpayment in Puerto Rico, but I am not finding much! I know some state have specific laws about it, but I can't seem to find anything for PR...

    • And I have yet to find the PR DOL site in English. When I had employees in Puerto Rico, I used to call one of my native Spanish-speaking employees come in and translate for me. I even paid her extra to do so! :)

    • Was this the mandatory PR Christmas bonus?

    • I have little to no information about PR, but I have a hard time believing that an employer would be restricted from recovering a recent overpayment.

      How much was the overpayment and how long ago was it? Are you the employer or the employee?

    • The overpayment was six months ago -- we have a bonus pool set aside and the person in charge of the payments was supposed to pay a bonus to PR employees based on the previous year, but instead paid it based on the previous 3 years! If we don't get the money back from the overpaid employees, it will leave less money in the pool for the remaining employees.
