3M paying back nearly $1M in overpayments improperly deducted from employee paychecks

Thousands of 3M employees have been accidentally overpaid in recent years, often a few pennies or dollars, due to time card issues that didn't get resolved before paychecks were issued.

The Maplewood-based company made it a habit to claw back the overpayments with deductions from a subsequent paycheck, but without voluntary written consent from employees. That's illegal.

Now 3M will pay back more than $960,000 it deducted without that authorization in a settlement with the state Attorney General's Office announced Thursday.
