(4) A cheque is not incomplete or irregular on its face by reason only that it is post-dated (whether or not the date has arrived).
The Commonwealth Bank of Australia's rules and conditions for cheques (2014: Section 1.7.6 'Dishonour of cheques') clearly state that a cheque will be dishonoured if it is presented before the post-date as written on the cheque for the reason that, '..cheque bears a date that is in the future.
(Assuming the employer contests your UI claim.)Good luck.

According to the Comptroller of the Currency: "A check is a negotiable instrument—the payee, the person to whom the check is written, may negotiate it through the banking system at any time" and check writers seeking redress must restrict themselves to pursuing the payee.
In practice, whether the check writer has any redress against the financial institution where the payee deposited the check may depend on whether it can be shown that the check was accepted over the counter without examination.
In other words, if this practice was accepted practice with your employer, and you can prove it, you may be able to show that it is lying when it says you broke one of its policies.

Hi again, If you are admitting it was misconduct, you likely will not win an appeal.
The post-dated cheque is not payable till the date which is shown on the face of the said document.
It will only become cheque on the date shown on it and prior to that it remains a bill of exchange under Section 5 of the Act.
As a bill of exchange a post-dated cheque remains negotiable but it will not become a "cheque" till the date when it becomes "payable on demand".
As noted misconduct is an express reason for denial.
If you are saying, "yes, I did it, but I did not know it was against company policy because people do it all the time" - then you MAY have some appeal leverage, with no guarantees.
