  • Bounced checks week after week North Carolina

    My employer in the past two months has bounced our staffs checks week after week he makes them good once we get notices from our banks/stores that they have bounced but now many of us are unable to even cash his checks as our banks/stores will not take them.

    He makes the bad check good with cash but what can we do myself I have gotten returned check fees in the hundred of dollars as my check bounce because his bounced

    This week he paid us from some new company he set up and now I'm hearing that those checks are bouncing

    He keeps making them good after they bounce with cash but there must be something we can do to force him to pay up for all the other money he is costing us he pays us 25.00 for the bounced fee from our banks/stores but nothing to cover the costs of what his bounced checks do to our checks

    Plus our reputation in town has been harmed as many of us are now labeled deadbeats who pass worthless checks

    The next time your check bounces, file a claim with the NC DOL.
    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.

        If he is having trouble making payroll, your best bet is probably to look for other employment.
        Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia

          Seriously, the best thing you can do is find a new job. Either your owner is completely incompetent at running his business, or he's unethical, or both. Either way, the situation will not change.

          You can do as cbg suggests and file a claim, but honestly the quickest, most effective solution is to find an honest employer.

            Telling this person to find a new job is not helpful. Jobs are scarce, and I'm sure they would have left already if it were that easy. The specific question is how to recover fees & what recourse is there for the damages to credit ratings and character. If you can't address those issues, why post meaningless stuff and waste time & resources?
            Did you ever get any type of resolution?
            We are having a similar experience in NC, except we can't get $ from some checks still owed, and payroll witholdings have been reported on income not received.

              It's not for you to decide what may or may not be helpful to others. Sometimes people need a third party to tell them to do what they already know they should do.

                  And you are still being rude to people who are volunteering their time. If you don't like our advice, it's worth what you pay for it. Also, don't resurrect long dead threads. I doubt MadMachinist is still around.

                  The fact is, if an employer is bouncing people's paychecks, they are broke. No one, not even the government, can make someone pay who has no money. The best, quickest way to fix the problem is to find another job as quickly as you can. I realize that's not always easy, but I left my magic problem solving wand at home. We give the best advice we can. Sometimes it does amount to, "that sucks, change the situation as quickly as you can."

                    Frankly, I find your responses childish, AND rude, as well as useless. You are the one on a free website, offering non-advice, instead if making a living in your chosen "profession" - that speaks volumes about your worth. I will seek advice from a real & competent attorney. I would suggest you grow up, but I am quite sure that is not likely to happen, so continue on with your free, useless "advice", & feel free to call me names, as I have more than enough character to handle it.

                        You do that, since you clearly do not understand the limits of a message board forum. Maybe advice you have to pay for will be more to your liking.

                            I'm very sorry to hear that, MadM. I hope that you're collecting unemployment or better yet, have found that better new job by now. Good luck to you.
