what should i do about this? i haven't received my paychecks!?
okay im having problems with recieving my checks through a company that i worked at for 4 days, MDM in Bridgeview, Illinois. i believe these people are screwing me over on 2 payments i should of received about 2 weeks ago, i worked there for 4 days, Friday the 4th and Monday,Tuesday, and Wednesday; the following week on the 7th,8th,and 9th. when i applied for the job, they had me do the application in pencil- i just had to write my basic info down, name-address-convicted of crime or not-employment history-SS# and telephone number. that very same day, they called me and said to come in the next day with all my papers and info (state i.d,ssc, and birth certificate) cause i got the job. so i did, well for the next 4 days that i worked there they were giving me problems saying i smelt like liquor and weed, which i didn't because i do not drink on a job and i don't smoke weed at all. so i don't know what that was all about, my last day of the job i did very good, better then people that have been working there longer then me. and for some reason they switched me to a harder job and told me before i left that they'll see tomorrow if ill keep the job. so the next day i didn't show up because i knew what they were going to do; have me come in just to fire me in front of a bunch of my coworkers. i called in and my boss told me that she was going to tell me that day that the job wasn't working for me anyways, and that i was fired. so i asked about my check\s and they told me that i would have to get them through the mail and they don't come to the company til that Friday. so on Friday i called and asked if i could just come and pick them up myself because i only live 10 minutes away. They told me that they sent out my first check from the first day i worked, but they had to wait for my other to send it out the next Friday and i couldn't come up there myself to get them. so on Tuesday the 15th, i called again cause i didn't receive my first check. the same exact lady that i talked to on the phone that passed Friday told me that she just sent out both checks that very same day and to call back in a week if i still haven't got them. so today is the 22nd and i have still not gotten my checks. so i called again and she told me to call my local post office to see if they received them or what happened to them. i called my post office and they told me they haven't gotten anything. so i called the company back and they told me that "they sent them out", which if they were sent out i would've gotten them already the next day if not that, at least only in two days, considering i live 2 towns away from there. and then i just asked them again instead of having to go through a bunch of crap with them about my checks that if they could just cancel them and if i could come pick them up myself, they, as crazy as this sounds for some reason said "its on me that i didn't get my checks, and if my address was written wrong on my application that i have to charged a 25 fee for getting it wrong. ?=/ i have never heard of that in my life. i know for a fact that i wrote my address right, and if anything its there responsibility to make sure i get my pay checks from their company.They seen my state i.d so there shouldn't be any reason it got sent to the wrong address, and they also made me write the application in pencil, so if they wanted to erase something on there , they could! to me this all sounds too suspicious i do not know whats up with this place but they're on bullshit with my checks! please tell me what i can do about this.

It sound suspicious to me as well. Contacting the post office is 100% useless. Unless they send the checks with a tracking number, which at minimum cost an extra $5.00 postage, the post office has NO IDEA if the item was ever mailed, let alone where it is now. In addition, the employer is responsible for making sure... More
