Q:

How do I get a copy of my pay stubs?

A:

A copy of a pay stub can be requested from an employer. Pay stubs are important because they prove income, and this is necessary when applying for unemployment benefits as well as for other personal financing reasons. Most states require employers give employees pay stubs each time they are paid.

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.
