Above the Law hears about all the best nonsense first. For instance, K&L Gates associates have not yet heard about 2008 bonuses or 2009 raises. After all, who’d want to plan ahead or anything?

But now it seems the firm has compounded their reticence to make decisions with a royal payroll f*ckup:

Please see the email below regarding an error with the direct deposit of the January 22nd payroll. In short the issue is that your payroll appears to have been deposited 3 times and the firm is in the process of request [sic] 2 of those be returned. So, please be careful not to spend more then your normal pay until you see that they [sic] corrections have been made to your account.

On the downside, K&L uses an inept payroll company. On the upside, the firm’s cash flow must be nice and healthy if it can afford to triple pay all of its associates.

I don’t know how this kind of stupid mistake affects the associates at the world’s 10th largest law firm. But I’ve had friends who were overpaid, and then had to return the money — and it really, really screwed them financially.
