New York, NY asked in Workers' Compensation for Kentucky

Q: Who gets reimbursement (employer or WC) if I was mistakenly paid by both? How long do I have to repay if short now?

This is my first time filing and had no idea how it worked. I received a registered letter from WC stating in CAPITAL letters that they "DID NOT" know that they were also paying me. If my employer pays for workers compensation, shouldn't I have to pay them back and not WC? I am currently trying to get the answer on whether my employer has used my accrued PTO time. If my employer did use my PTO to pay me, can I pay back the WC and get back my PTO time?

Thank you
