Lincolnshire County Council staff who've been overpaid in error may be told they can keep the money.
Salary overpayments totalling £1.7m were discovered at the council.
The mistakes happened after private contractor Serco took over payroll - and more than £1m has so far been recovered.

Sebbie Barnes, from the county council, says Serco will pay for the mistake not the council.
The House of Fraser stores in Grimsby and Lincoln are to close, it's been confirmed.
Creditors have approved a rescue deal for the department store but the move means the company will press ahead and close 31 of its stores.

A 46-year-old man has been told he could face jail if he continues street begging in Lincoln.
Eamonn Walsh has been handed a criminal behaviour order lasting three years which bans him from asking for money within a designated zone.
It follows numerous charges of begging in Lincoln, particularly in the Bailgate area.
Evidence suggests that some beggars claiming to be homeless actually have a home and Lincolnshire Police say this is the case for Mr Walsh.
Sgt Jon Mellor, from the City Centre Street Policing Team, says the issue of people who are not homeless begging will not go away while well-meaning people continue give on the street.
This diverts money from those vulnerable people who really need it and leads to more and more begging which can be persuasive, aggressive and intimidating."

They suffered bruises, scratches and shoulder, leg and hand injuries.
The suspect was arrested on suspicion of failing to stop, dangerous driving, failure to provide a roadside breath test and assaulting a police officer.
Ch Supt Darren Wildbore, from Humberside Police, said he wanted to commend the officers involved for their courage:

Thousands of residents in homes and static caravans along the Lincolnshire coast haven't even registered with its scheme.
Local residents can sign up online, or by calling 0345 988 1188, the agency said.
A lecturer at the University of Lincoln is calling for an end to the so-called "fast fashion" culture.
Fashion expert Victoria Bellandini says shoppers are putting the environment at risk by throwing out cheap clothes which are worn only a few times.
Her comments come as it's been announced MPs will investigate the rise of cheap, disposable clothes and their impact on the environment.
The "fast fashion" phenomenon - cheap clothing with a quick turnover which encourages people to keep buying - has come under fire over its environmental impact, including water pollution, the use of toxic chemicals and textile waste.
