A total of 14,000 state workers had their paychecks delayed last week because of what a state official is calling an “operator error.”
Department of Administration spokeswoman Brenna McCabe said on Tuesday that 90 percent were paid by the end of the day on Friday.
Hundreds more were paid over the weekend. Around 1,000 employees received their pay on Tuesday.
The department last week would not say how many employees were affected and blamed the problem on what it called a “file delay.”
McCabe on Tuesday didn’t say who made the error.
She said safeguards are being installed to make sure it does not happen again.
She said the state will pay for overdraft fees for anyone affected.
