Yes, and it's important to note that payroll is a record keeping dept, not an authoritative or custodial department. The treasurey (signer of checks) is a custodial department who takes possession of the unclaimed checks. This is a common exam trick!

Returning those undistributed checks to the payroll dept. (a record keeping function) would be considered an ineffective SOD. Since a record keeping function should not have custody of undistributed checks, employees not involved in the payroll or human resources function should maintain custody as well as investigate and reconcile the returned payroll checks.

Pay roll department authorizes payroll. They can not have custody of those cheques. It contradict the concept of ARC. Payroll department can not authorize and have custody of same cheques.

It should be give to any independent person other than parties who have ARC functions.

Going over a Becker MCQ concerning segregation of duties.  Please let me know if you have a correct answer.

If a payroll clerk distrubutes signed payroll checks, and there are checks left undistributed... why is it not ok to return these checks to the payroll dept?

 

In a real life scenario, who would take the unclaimed checks?

How important are the flow charts for exam point of view?especially financing and investing transaction cycles?
