An employer cannot lawfully withhold your paycheck. If you are getting the run around when requesting that your former employer send you your paycheck, you can contact the U.S. Department of Labor – Wage and Hour Department or your state labor department and file a complaint against them.

Ohio law requires semi-monthly payment of wages. See O.R.C. 4113.15. For example, if you worked any time during the period of April 1 through April 15, your employer must pay you for that time on or before May 1. Likewise, if you worked any time during the period of April 16 through April 30, your employer must pay you on or before May 15.
Your employer - even your former employer - must pay you for time worked according to that schedule. If your employer does not pay you within thirty days of that deadline, you may be entitled to additional payments as penalties.
