    There is some advantage to rountinely U.S. mailing all checks (except for termination checks) and payment advises. It helps ensure that a current address is on file, it pretty much eliminates the special handling requests, and tends to greatly (and legally) increase participation in direct deposit. Also, if the company uses supervisors to hand checks out, they are not only wasting supervisor time (best case) but also greatly increases the chances of "ghost" employees, where the supervisor fails to tell the company when an employee terminates, fills out the timesheets, and cashes the pay checks made out to the terminated employee.

    We actually ended up cutting WAY down on this when every time it happened, we gave the employee (we made the employee himself turn in the form) a direct deposit enrollment form. It became abundantly clear that this was critical when I managed the payroll operations for a international company who had employees taken hostage when Iraq invaded Kuwait.

    We dont do it because we have too many employees to mess with give this check to the wife, that check to the husband, that check to the son this week but not next week. It got to be a real pain and payroll instituted a policy that it could be mailed but would not be given out to anyone other than the employee.
    Thats why we did it.

    Legally, no, the employer does not have to honor the document. However, as ScottB mentioned, if the signatures appear to match the employee's signature on other documents, I don't know why you wouldn't. I've managed very large payroll operations over the years, and we would do so.

    If you're the employer, it's a good opportunity to push direct deposit, though. And if you're the employee, and the employer offers it, I strongly recommend enrolling; saves all this hassle.

    I suspect that it would be difficult to show that an employer must honor such a document.

    If the employee worked for me, though, and had not been fired, then why would I not honor it, if I thought it was genuine?

    Designating Someone to Pick-up Your Paycheck Virginia

    Hello,

    An individual has designated, in writing, someone to pick-up their paycheck. Is the employer bound by this document?

    I am a newbie on this formum and need an answer pretty quickly.

    Thank you.
