Microsoft has just done another PR blunder. Some 1400 people fired were payed too much severance and Microsoft is asking for it back. Something tells me that Microsoft will drop the notices soon after this makes the rounds on the internet.


Talk about adding insult to injury. Apparently Microsoft has inadvertently overpaid severance to some of its recently laid off employees, and is now asking for some of the money back. It’s unclear how many of the 1,400 employees laid off last month were affected, but we’ve confirmed that it wasn’t a single isolated incident (we’ve contacted Microsoft for a response). We’re also hearing that some employees may have been underpaid as well.

They must be using Microsoft Money or Excel for payroll!
