can a employer make you pay for a mistake they made on your check
Yes, it is legal for them to recover their money in all 50 states. I know it's frustrating. But, they are not making you pay for their mistake. They are only recovering their own money that you have not earned yet. Many employers will make arrangements to recover their money in smaller amounts over a few paychecks if recovering the entire amount at once would cause hardship to the employee. It may be a good idea to respectfully explore this possibility with your employer. I hope their mistake doesn't cause too many problems for you.
I have had this very thing happen to me at my last job, in both directions. Once I was paid nearly three times my normal amount and next two checks were almost nothing to compensate. And another time I was short-changed and they made it up to me later with a tiny bonus to apologize.
It is legitimate for the company to recover the funds, even it seems unfair to you. But think of it from their perspective, that it might seem unfair if you were to refuse to give back the overage.
