that sounds crazy to me. never heard of anything like that. welcome to the forum. it helps to know what state you are in as some state laws are different.

made you give them your check ? uhh NO its your money not theirs......I suggest you talk to your WC worker and ask her/him as it may be true for your state but I doubt it
RE: wc check - ubrewme - 02-23-2009 12:09 AM
No way! The only way they can take the check is in situations such as one I was in back in 1999 in a w/c covered car accident. I was hit by an 18 wheeler while traveling back from the police academy. The department I worked for kept me on payroll so I wouldn't have the cut in pay. In turn, I gave them the w/c check.
I cannot imagine any other reason besides them just ripping you off as payback for having a claim.

You giving up the check is your choice. PERIOD. If you do not want to give them the check then don't. It is not your problem that the company you work for pays bi-weekly. I personaly would have told them where they can go with that rediculas garbage.

What state are you from?
hope you have a lawyer .

I can't say anything better, than what has already been said. Consult with a lawyer, they are free for a consult and you will probably need one sooner or later anyway. I see no reason for them to ask you for your check.

if you are getting your full pay while you are off work then some jurisdictions allow the employer to offset the full salary benefit with your TD.
how is the check drawn? is it an OR check (the payee = you OR employer)?

I'm with everybody else on this, if the check is made out to you cash it! My company pays every two weeks but disablity WC checks pay every week.

I have a friend in Iowa that his employer was paying his full regular salary while he was out on work comp and he signed and gave his wc checks to his employer.
