The school says in a lawsuit that it paid Sara Gaspar the huge gratuity instead of about $29 because of a clerical error. The suit, filed in St. Joseph Circuit Court in South Bend, says Gaspar kept the money without telling the school. But what i dont understand is, "Why is this the employees problem?" The school should have paid more detail before the cut the check.

Notre Dame sues ex-worker over $29,000 tip
A woman who worked for the University of Notre Dame received a $29,000 tip. So she of course thought it was her lucky day. Especially since she called the school three times about the payment. So after they gave no reply she decided to spend the money on a car and to pay bills after several months. So now the university is suing her to get the money back.
