Honest Employee Hands Back $3.2M Overpayment

Unnamed engineer, who makes turbine blades at Alcoa Howmet in Exeter, England, has handed back £2m ($3.2 million) mistakenly paid to him by his employer, reports BBC.

The spokesman for Alcoa Howmet said the worker immediately informed his manager when he received a paycheck a thousand times bigger than his usual salary.

“We are very happy that this employee acted so quickly. We are obviously very pleased that the person acted in such an honest and immediate way and showed so much integrity,” the spokesman said.

He also confirmed the employee’s honest and prompt action would be recognised.
