FORT MILL TOWNSHIP --
Some employees of the Upper Palmetto YMCA had a surprise waiting for them when they tried to deposit their paychecks this week.
The checks were returned for insufficient funds, officials said.
Chief Financial Officer Chris Zamorski said the error was “a glitch” caused by the payroll company the YMCA uses.
He wasn’t sure how many employees of their 10 branches were affected. There are two YMCA branches in the township: The Gold Hill branch near Tega Cay and the Fort Mill branch in Baxter Village.
Zamorski learned of the problem Tuesday morning when he was contacted by Clover Community Bank, where at least eight account holders tried to cash or deposit their checks.
Anyone who incurred fees from their bank as a result of the error will be reimbursed, Zamorski said. Branch directors are responsible for getting the names of affected employees and the amount of fees they incurred.
The reimbursement will not come from the YMCA’s budget, but from the payroll company, he added.
“They are on top of it and as soon as we get the list to them, it will be resolved. Today or tomorrow, just as soon as we get that information,” Zamorski said.
Zamorski declined to name the payroll company, but said he does not expect this to be a recurring problem.
“We’ve been using the payroll company for ten years and it’s never happened,” he said.
