    Default Lost Old Paycheck. Employer Won't Send a New One Out

    My question involves court procedures for the state of: ohio

    Hey I had a paycheck for net 500 bucks paid to me about 3 years ago.
    I got check.. left in glove compartment for almost a year.
    Then i found it.. tried to take to bank but they said it was expired.
    'Then i lost this check.
    I"ve called employer and they wont send out a new check even though they talk nice on phone.

    Anyways what should i do? been about three years now.. can i still legally force them or courts to send me this check?

    thanks

    Contact the Ohio Department of Labor:

    https://ohio.gov/wps/portal/gov/site...ubs/labor-law/

    Ask if there are any laws or rules about a former employer having to replace a lost paycheck.

    If not, you can take a shot at suing in small claims court for the money and see how that goes.

    In general, the SOL on lost wages is 2 years, 3 if it is determined to be a "willful" violation. So do not waste any time about it as you may have already waited too long.
