Must one pay back an overpay to their employer?

Question Details: My daughter was working for a company as a store manager and was managing 2 stores. Her boss told her that she could claim her mileage. She had to fill out a slip and email it to him and take money out of the register to pay her mileage. After several months, the corporate office ask why her mileage was so high. She was claiming her mileage to and from her home and back-and-forth between the 2 stores. The corporate office said she could only claim mileage between the stores and demanded that she had to pay them back $2800 mileage claims. A week later they fired her for not following company policy. Her managers approved her mileage claims. Is she required to pay them back and, if not, can they file charges against her?
