Uncollected initial payroll cheques (pre-2017)


It came to light that some UBC employees have not collected their initial payroll cheques prior to December 31, 2016.

We have contacted, by mail, all current employees who are affected and are replacing the uncollected payments, with interest, through our standard payroll runs on June 15 and June 23, 2017. You will receive a letter with details if you are affected. If you have not received a letter, you are not affected.

Inquiries can be directed to info.cheques@ubc.ca or 604 827 2731 to answer any questions. We will endeavour to respond as soon as possible; however, response times may vary depending upon call volumes. We appreciate your patience.

If direct deposit is not in place for a new employee, our revised practice is to mail out all initial payroll cheques to the address on their HRMS file. We also contact new employees to secure their direct deposit as soon as possible after they commence employment.

If you started working at UBC after July 31, 2016, this will not affect you as we have mailed out any cheques dated thereafter.

Amounts unclaimed by former employees who left the university between April 14 and July 31, 2016 have been submitted to the Employment Standards Branch. These former employees are advised to contact the Employment Standards Branch:

Employees who left UBC prior to April 14, 2016 are advised to review the database on the BC Unclaimed Property Society website or email info@unclaimedpropertybc.ca.
