TOPIC: Employer bought my supplies, can they keep them?

Employer bought my supplies, can they keep them? 6 years 10 months ago #25

Notary commissions and supplies belong to the notary regardless of who purchased them. If you have an employer who refuses to release your commission or seal after you have terminated employment, the Secretary of State recommends you do the following:

  • Use the Lost/Stolen Stamp Form to notify the State that your former employer has taken possession of your seal.
  • The Secretary of State suggests mailing a certified letter to your employer stating that the seal is the property of the notary and should be returned to you.
  • If the employer refuses to return the seal, you may consider filing a report with your local law enforcement agency. This provides a permanent record that your stamp was out of your possession if someone were to use your seal improperly.
  • Contact us to replace your seal, certificate, or any other supplies you may need.
