A coworker argued that withholding a conditional release for a CA job would benefit our company if there are prior unpaid conditional releases. I stated that it would not benefit us to withhold any conditional releases, as they still show a balance owed, with prior release amounts listed as exceptions. It is still a collection tool showing balances owed to our company. I am curious if there is any guideline in regards to withholding a conditional release. I see no benefit to this.
