  • not getting paid on time Massachusetts

    I have been working for this company for 3 years now, however I never get my check on time. The check will either be mailed to my residents or pick it up on Fridays. The problem I have is there are many weeks the checks arent ready, boss on vacation and forgot to sign them, or many other reasons. They always have excuses. I am sick of these excuses and wondering if there is anything I can do or what the law is for or against this?? I couldnt even pay my rent on time because the checks were late.

    Thank you

    Is direct deposit a possibility?

      Ma. - employees who work five or six days per week must be paid within six days of the close of the pay period; employees who work seven days a week or less than five days per week must be paid within seven days of the close of the pay period.

        I only work there 3 days a week, approximately 16 hours. So do the laws change? The current check is now 14 days late.

        Also I wish direct deposit was possible, but last time I checked it was not. Thank you for the advice and I will check on that tomorrow!!!

          Put in a complaint with your state's Attorney General's Office.

            I think i just may do that. However, I will give them the option of direct payment!
