Microsoft Asks Laid Off Works For Some Severance Back [MSFT FAIL!]

Posted Feb 21, 2009

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) apparently gave away too much severance to some of their most recently laid off employees.  Now Microsoft is asking for some of that money back.  It is not clear how many people were affected, but this didn’t happen to just one person.

Microsoft employees obviously wouldn’t be happy about this because severance is a sensitive issue.  Microsoft human resources did not exactly explain why this happened, but employees are encourage to call the office if they want to know what happened.  Microsoft’s payroll department is based in Fargo, ND.

Above is a screenshot of the letter sent to an anonymous victim.
