  • No paycheck unless I fill out form? Michigan

    Working at place for three years. Recently when there was a minor medical emergency involving a fellow employe. Next paycheck there was emergency contact forms in paycheck envelope. Same with the following paycheck. Then most recently when handing out paychecks I was informed I could not have mine until I filled out the form and returned it.

    Everyone else got their paychecks, and those who filled out the form then and there had their paychecks retrieved from HR right away.

    My original application had emergency contact info filled out.(not sure if relevant).

    Is this legal?

    It is not legal to refuse to give you your paycheck until you complete the form.

    It is legal to discipline you in ways that do not involve holding your paycheck until you complete the form. It would be legal to fire you if you do not complete the form.

    This remains true even if you completed the form at hire.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      Why is giving emergency contact info a deal breaker for you?

      I send around a form once a year asking employees to verify the information I have in my system is correct. This includes an emergency contact.

        Why is this a problem? No, it's not legal, but why are you resisting a simple emergency contact? The company is just trying to make sure they could notify whoever you would want notified if something happens.
