Is my employer liable for my overdraft fees if my payroll check bounced.

Asked about 5 years ago - Oakland, CA

Last Sunday I received my payroll check and as always I deposited my checks and I wrote out my bills like I always do. Well 4-day into the week. I wanted to see if all my checks cleared and this is when I found out that my payroll check bounced. I have since incurred over $100 worth of fees. I have contacted my employer, but I have not received a replacement check. I want to know If I can get them to pay my bank fees as well.

    Answered . I would ask. Ultimately, they ARE responsible for this expense, but do you really want to sue your boss in Small claims if he refused to pay?
