It is every employer’s responsibility to identify paychecks that 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. This webinar explains when wages are considered abandoned, how to track and submit these checks to the appropriate state and how to perform the required due diligence.
Among other things, the course will cover topics & questions such as:

  • When wages are considered abandoned
  • What laws or regulations cover unclaimed wages
  • What is payroll’s responsibility relating to abandoned wages
  • What processes to take to correctly report and remit unclaimed wages
  • Liability issues—what do you do if you have an outside payroll service
  • How to establish proper procedures for tracking unclaimed wages correspondence to comply with due diligence requirements
  • How to safeguard unclaimed wages from unauthorized and improper release
  • The importance of written procedures
  • Steps to surviving an audit
