Pay no attention if your paycheck is screwed up

The county launched its new, late, expensive, it's-been-really-a-pain human resources system last month and, predicatably, there were a few glitches.

An email went out from the county's information technology folks describing a few of the problems: some employees had union dues deducted twice; some had too many insurance premiums deducted.

The county promised to fix all those woes.

The best one, though, has to be this:

The YTD year-to-date) numbers on the bottom of your paycheck may be incorrect. Do not be concerned.

You bet. The system implementation was a royal mess, and there was that little matter of omitting a half-million dollar retiree benefit component, but don't worry if your income is underreported on your paycheck.

Don't think so.
