    Default Payroll Checks Cashed After Stop Payment Had Been Issued

    My question involves business law in the state of: South Carolina
    I had 2 employees that walked out on the job so I stopped payment on their checks, now the check cashing place which cashed the checks after the stop payment was initiated is filing against me for payment when I did not endorse them......is there some form of Verification laws that the check cashing places have to follow and I thought that when the person who endorsed the check bounced it they went after that person not the company....Please help!!

    why would you think it legal to stop payment on payroll checks?

    the check cashing place may have done you a huge favor.

    That was your first mistake. No matter what they did or didn't do, there are NO circumstances whatsoever when it is legal to NOT pay an employee for work they have already done.

    Concur with Cyjeff.

    You can't stop their payroll checks just because they quit with no notice. You are required by law to pay them for the work they have done.

    Further, even if the checks encompass money that you don't owe them, stopping payment on them is still illegal in most cases.
