Severna Park, MD asked in Employment Law and Workers' Compensation for Maryland

Q: About final checks

I was fired from my work (local restaurant). And to be paid we are handed in person paychecks. I still don't have my final paycheck because I am scared of talking to my former bosses. It has been around 4 months now since my termination and i was wondering, how long are they required to hold on to my check. And if my check gets expired are they required to reprint a new one?

Thank you

A: You should e-mail your former employer and request that they mail you your check. Give them your current address.
