PLYMOUTH – The payroll error impacting all 1,300 employees of the Plymouth school system is causing major headaches for the town.
The Plymouth town administration has taken responsibility for the error, which resulted in workers not receiving their paychecks and also having money withdrawn from their bank accounts. The town will be covering any fees associated with that mistake, according to Donna Ramsey, the president of the Educational Association of Plymouth and Carver.
“They brought in a skeleton crew on Friday when town hall was supposed to be closed, so they took this very, very seriously. They knew the impact,” said Ramsey. “The town manager of Plymouth has taken full control of this. The town has taken responsibility for the error. The school side and the town side have been working with all of the banks.”
The town has to work with hundreds of banks to restore the funds, she said.
