My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: New York
An old employee left behind quite a bit of personal property including office equipment. From what I understand this employee has been gone for almost two years. People have tried to contact her to get her to retrieve her items and I believe an offer was made to ship the items to her. She simply says to talk to her lawyer about this. As far as I know, no records of trying to contact her regarding her items have been kept. How long are we obligated to keep these items? Am I allowed to give her a deadline to retrieve her things? I am unsure of the law in NYC and NY State.
Any advice is welcome!
