  • Restricted endorsements Georgia

    After termination, I contend retaliation to wage and hour audit and findings,
    I received the original wage and hour check for $1,000 plus an additional $3,000.00 separation check. I did not sign any release. The separation check has a restirctive endorsement " Acceptance of this check releases "Company Name" and or it's affiliates from any and all obligations related to your employment". After talking with the DOL regarding these checks, they said this was too broad for enforcing this restrictive endorsement. They told me since I didn't sign their release I could cash these checks and continue suit against the company for the remaining approximately $6,000. What about this restrictive endorsement? Thanks for your help

    If you're not comfortable with just the opinion of the DOL & want a second opinion, why don't you talk to an attorney before signing & cashing the checks.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
