Full Answer

For an employee who receives pay via direct deposit, the employer should send a copy of the pay stub through the mail. If an employee wants a second copy of a pay stub, then a small fee may need to be paid to cover administrative expenses. If an employer refuses to provide a copy of a pay stub, then a complaint can be filed with the state labor department. Depending on the state, the employer has to pay a violation penalty.
