It’s important that all employees, especially accounting personnel, know that unclaimed property doesn’t belong to the company.
Since you owe that money to either the state or the property owner, uncashed checks should never be voided.
Every state in the union has what are called escheatment laws that require a business to hand over unclaimed property after a certain time period.
Uncashed checks to vendors, contractors, payroll checks to employees, and dividends and distributions to stockholders are all potential unclaimed property.
Within 24 hours experienced local lawyers review it and evaluate if you have a solid case.
