Notary Public Law and Process (New Jersey) Seminar
Employers of Notaries Public have long held the presumption that their notary-employees are commissioned, managed and disciplined by the state commissioning agency. Precedent setting case law demonstrates the need for employers of notaries public to take a closer look at their notary education standards, management program, and disciplinary actions to protect their institution from losses that result from errant notaries public; not just the notaries public under their employ. Accepting an inaccurate or illegal document executed by another notary equally exposes your institution to risk in the underlying transaction. After completing this workshop, participants will understand three basic notarial acts, apply the required acts to their institutions’ forms, draft an accurate notarial certificate, review completed documents for notary compliance, understand the need to reject inaccurate notarial acts, and implemental basic notarial instructions for all affected documents necessitating execution by a notary public.
