A Senate committee is holding a hearing to learn more about state employees’ salary and wage overpayments.

The hearing was scheduled in response to a recent investigation that found the state had overpaid workers more than $2 million.

The Senate Special Committee on Accountability will meet Tuesday afternoon to consider resolutions asking the state Auditor to conduct audits of Hawaii agencies to assess the scope of the overpayments.

Committee chairwoman Donna Mercado Kim says she intends to examine payroll and sick leave procedures. She also wants to look into statutes that deal with recovering the overpayments.

The testimony from the hearing will help the committee determine what action to recommend to the full Senate, Kim says.
