LEBANON, Tenn. - Friday means payday for many people, but several Wilson County employees are upset over a "miscommunication" that meant no paycheck before the Halloween weekend.
Wilson County Emergency Management Agency employees, including paramedics and firefighters, were surprised when a scheduled paycheck didn't come on October 30.
An online schedule that employees use to check the date of payday listed October 30, while the actual paychecks were dated November 2.
The small discrepancy has left many employees scrambling on Halloween weekend.
"Especially in this economy, losing money because of overdraft fees has caused issues," said Brent Dyer of the Wilson County Firefighters Association.
Wilson County Finance Director Ron Gilbert told News 2 that the difference between the scheduled payday and actual payday was "all a miscommunication."
Gilbert said his office simply executed what the Wilson County Emergency Management Agency told him to do.
After receiving several complaints about the payday discrepancy, Gilbert said that if the pay date falls on the weekend again, he will pay employees ahead of time.
