Oakley, CA asked in Employment Law for Hawaii

Q: Is there a case that I can make to keep overpayment if I contacted the employer multiple times to try and stop payment?

I was in an upper management role, salaried and gave 2 weeks notice before my date to leave. Corporate climate and no direct HR to speak with, I called out HR number total of 7 times, 2 emails verifying my last day of employment. Both before and after I received overpayment. My employees still called me 3 times after I left for help and all reports were kept in my name after I left to avoid anyone knowing the top producer had left. Finally after the 2nd overpayment i tried My login for work and emailed everyone internally to get this top stop. At this point I had called the HR team as well 6 times. I resigned on Oct 14, last day 27... and it took until Dec 1 to receive Cobra paperwork and a notice that I have 20 days to return the overpayment or it goes up 50%. Do I have a case against them for delay in Cobra or in their error? Most jobs I have left I received payment after due to PTO so I presumed after multiple contacts that was this as well.
