Cashier Law and Legal Definition

Cashier means a person who receives and records payments at a business. It can be a bank's or trust company's executive officer, who is responsible for banking transactions.

It also refers to dismissal from service dishonorably; to deprive a military man of his office. For example, every officer who shall be convicted, before a general court martial, of leaving signed a false certificate relating to the absence of either officer or private soldier, or relative to his daily pay, shall be, cashiered.
