    Sorry in advance for changing the subject somewhat. i was reading some of the topics and saw "is my nursing agency cheating me". anyways, i'm working prn through an agency while i'm in nursing school. it's a great agency with ok pay for CMT/CNA's. what i don't like is that they charge a $5.00 fee for us to get our check. another agency that i used to work for did the samething but it was $2.00. i've worked through agencies in the past and never had them charge me to get money that i worked for. what do you all think of this practice and if you're working for an agency do they charge you to get your money?
    I've never heard of this. Is this a fee to receive a paper check as opposed to direct deposit. It still wouldn't make any sense to me. I've had direct deposit for many years, but have always gotten a hard copy of my earnings statement. Please let us know how the agency justifies this fee, what they call it, how it shows up on your income statement and whether it is taken out before or after taxes.

    The fee is for recieving a paper check weather its for a daily pay or weekly check. i was told that "it's a corporate thing" and i'm like ok but why? i've never got a straight answer from them about it. i've got to call their coroprate office and if i don't get an honest answer, i'll try something else.
    oh btw the fee is taken out after taxes.

    "It's a corporate thing" is a suspicious answer. How does it show up on your earnings statement, or do you even get a hard copy of your earnings statement? I have heard of agencies charging a fee for same day pay, but not for a regular paycheck. Sounds like direct deposit would take care of this. It also sounds like some agencies are trying to follow in telecommunications companies footsteps. Telecoms have been (trying to) assessing fees for paper bills under the pretense that they are trying to be green, however, the same companies fill my mailbox with junk mail every week and the paper my statement is printed on does not even come from wild trees, but rather from woodchips created in the milling process or trees grown specifically for this purpose. Anyway, one of the major cellular service providers abandoned their plan to charge a paper fee after customers flooded them with complaints and threats to switch. Incidentally, I just switched my service over to this company, after my previous provider started charging me a 50 cent fee. Most companies believe that assessing a rediculous fee will not motivate most customers to do anything and mostly they are right. Losing a few hundred customers over a 50 cent fee is nothing in comparison to the millions who are happy to pay it.
