recouping commission paid in error

Good Afternoon,

I have an employee that was overpaid a fairly significant amount ($2k) in commissions last month. This was an honest error on the employee's part. As the employer, I want to fully understand what our rights are in recouping the over-payment. I believe the simple solution would be to break the amount into 2 or 3 installments and deduct that amount from the next 2 or 3 monthly commission payments until repaid. This seems fair to both sides and would not create an undue financial hardship for the employee.

Thoughts?

Sincerely,

Cheryl M
