It is every employer’s responsibility to identify which paychecks have remained unclaimed by employees and to turn over these “unclaimed wages” to the appropriate state annually. But most employers are unaware of this requirement and are equally unaware of the penalties, fines and especially interest that can be levied against such employers by the state.
Join Vicki M. Lambert, CPP in this 90 minutes session, where she will explain when wages are considered abandoned, how to track and submit these checks to the appropriate state and how to perform the required due diligence. She will shed light on the laws and regulations covering abandoned wages, and discuss how to set up procedures within the payroll department to ensure compliance with abandoned property laws. Vicki will also share examples of how to perform the required due diligence to avoid penalties and locate employees.
