Relief nurses must begin repaying extra bonus money
Los Angeles Times

Fiona Henlon still relives the shock of the letter that arrived three years ago.

Citing a breakdown in its payroll system, Los Angeles County health officials explained that they had mistakenly paid the registered nurse an extra $6,200 over a two-year period. And the government was demanding the money back.

Henlon, 45, said she hadn’t realized that she’d received the added money because she has no set schedule and her paychecks fluctuate.
