My pay check from my job was returned and caused my bank account to have a negative balance?
Can I charge my job for the amount of my pay check plus any returned check fees that occured because my pay check did not go through? Should I get a lawyer if my job doesn't pay me?

I have had this happen with my employer and it is the employers responsibility to pay the fees for a bounced check but NOT the fees for a negative balance because you need to make sure a check clears before you spend the money.
