Hamilton County teacher payroll error cleared up

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (Times Free Press) -

Officials say they're making right the wrong done by last week's payroll snafu that left thousands of school employees without their usual paycheck.

Today, officials will give teachers procedures for seeking reimbursement for any fees they incur as a result of the error.

On Friday, routine direct deposits of paychecks didn't show up for some 3,700 school teachers, assistant principals and classroom aides in what officials called a three-way communication issue among the school system, the county trustee and the bank.

County and school officials say they were able to fix the $3.8 million error faster than they anticipated, with most of those employees receiving their money by Friday afternoon or Saturday morning.
