Unclaimed Paycheck Rules


Handling Unclaimed Paychecks

Believe it or not, you just can’t keep a paycheck that an ex-employee fails to claim.

In fact, there are legal requirements that employers must follow for surrendering these unclaimed paychecks to legal authorities.

Don’t get caught – and penalized – for not following unclaimed paycheck laws for the state(s) in which you do business. Click the applicable links below for more information or to take a training course on Unclaimed Paychecks.

Legal Requirements For Unclaimed Paychecks

Amazingly, departing employees don't always collect all wages owed to them. Unfortunately, as a payroll professional, that becomes your problem.

And now, many states - given the current economic environment - are turning an ever vigilant eye towards unclaimed wages as a source of revenue that can be easily tapped with existing laws. All they have to do is to crackdown on enforcement - and they are doing just that.

Failure to comply with state regulations could now result in audit assessments, significant interest accumulations, and criminal penalties. And organizations with corporate headquarters in one state and employees in other states could be liable for penalties in all states that they have employees. Do you know your obligations?
