Taxes withheld higher rate

HR question: Employees continue to think that when an adjustment adds money to their check they are taxed more. Example if someone was shorted 8 hours of regular. I did explain. We will not do separate checks for shorted hours. I also stated they could complete a new W4. What are your thoughts on how to answer this question.

    I think it could increase their taxes because it will put additional pay into their paycheck for that week or, in the case of some systems, it will add it to the check it should have been put on, tax that in its entirety and then take that difference on the current check. Either way it COULD increase the percentage, depending on how much the current gross pay is.
