A computer glitch kept 5,000 Fletcher Allen Health Care employees from getting paid on time Thursday.
Direct deposits were scheduled to go into employees' bank accounts at midnight Thursday. But that did not happen. A spokesman for the Burlington hospital says there was a technical problem and they are working on a fix.
Fletcher Allen was working with local banks to cover employees' accounts by the end of the day. The hospital says worst case-- the direct deposits will be available to employees by noon Friday.
